SUS is a utility that allows regular users to be able to execute
certain commands as root.
Leon Juranic found a bug in the logging functionality of SUS that can
lead to local privilege escalation. A format string vulnerability
exists in the log() function due to an incorrect call to the syslog()
<impact type="high">
An attacker with local user privileges can potentially exploit this
vulnerability to gain root access.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All SUS users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge sync
# emerge -pv &quot;&gt;=app-admin/sus-2.0.2-r1&quot;
# emerge &quot;&gt;=app-admin/sus-2.0.2-r1&quot;</code>
