Network Management Protocol.

<description>
<p>
James Cloos reported that Perl modules from the Net-SNMP package look
for libraries in an untrusted location. This is due to a flaw in the
Gentoo package, and not the Net-SNMP suite.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
A local attacker (member of the portage group) may be able to create a
shared object that would be loaded by the Net-SNMP Perl modules,
executing arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the
Perl script.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
Limit group portage access to trusted users.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Net-SNMP users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=net-analyzer/net-snmp-5.2.1.2-r1&quot;</code>
</resolution>
