Description Mamoru KOMACHI (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-02-20 06:31:10 UTC
All ebuilds in app-i18n/uim have privilege escalation vulnerability
when you use it with immodule for Qt (if you build >=qt-3.3.2 with
USE="immqt" or USE="immqt-bc" you will get immodule for Qt). This is
fixed in uim- and uim-0.4.6_beta2.

usata, are there any setuid/setgid applications in the tree, which are linked against libuim? Otherwise we shouldn't be vulnerable... or am I overlooking something here?

Anyways... accepting bug.

arches, pls test and mark stable...

vorlon: I just checked my Gentoo desktop, and
found mlterm (USE="uim") is linked against libuim.
It is setgid to utmp.

hppa team: please add ~hppa keyword to uim-0.4.6_beta2.ebuild
as I removed uim-0.4.5-r1. (it was a snapshot from SVN repository)
