<p>Banshee is a multimedia management and playback application for GNOME.</p>
<p>Banshee places a zero-length directory name in PATH, which allows
libraries to be loaded from the working directory.
<impact type="low">
<p>A local attacker could put specially crafted library into working
directory of Banshee, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges of the process, or a Denial of Service condition.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All Banshee users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=media-sound/banshee-1.8.0-r1"
<p>NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since November 17, 2010. It is likely that your system is
already no longer affected by this issue.
