Certain Heimdal components, ftpd and rcp, are vulnerable to a local
privilege escalation.
<product type="ebuild">Heimdal</product>
<announced>August 23, 2006</announced>
<revised>August 23, 2006: 01</revised>
<package name="app-crypt/heimdal" auto="yes" arch="*">
<unaffected range="ge">0.7.2-r3</unaffected>
<vulnerable range="lt">0.7.2-r3</vulnerable>
Heimdal is a free implementation of Kerberos 5.
The ftpd and rcp applications provided by Heimdal fail to check the
return value of calls to seteuid().
<impact type="high">
A local attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary
code with elevated privileges.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Heimdal users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=app-crypt/heimdal-0.7.2-r3&quot;</code>
