<p>GNUstep Base library is a free software package implementing the API of
the OpenStep Foundation Kit (tm), including later additions.
<p>Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in GNUstep Base library.
Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
<impact type="high">
<p>A context-dependent attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code. A
local attacker could possibly read arbitrary files.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All GNUstep Base library users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
<p>Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
<p>NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since August 13, 2010. It is likely that your system is already
no longer affected by this issue.
