<p>
Masanari Yamamoto discovered that Uim uses environment variables
incorrectly. This bug causes a privilege escalation if setuid/setgid
applications are linked to libuim. This bug only affects
immodule-enabled Qt (if you build Qt 3.3.2 or later versions with
USE="immqt" or USE="immqt-bc").
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
A malicious local user could exploit this vulnerability to execute
arbitrary code with escalated privileges.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Uim users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=app-i18n/uim-0.4.9.1&quot;</code>
</resolution>
