1 CVE-2012-0035 +Priv 2012-01-19 2013-12-12
9.3
None Remote Medium Not required Complete Complete Complete
Untrusted search path vulnerability in EDE in CEDET before 1.0.1, as used in GNU Emacs before 23.4 and other products, allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted Lisp expression in a Project.ede file in the directory, or a parent directory, of an opened file.
2 CVE-2011-4355 264 +Priv 2013-03-05 2013-03-06
6.9
None Local Medium Not required Complete Complete Complete
GNU Project Debugger (GDB) before 7.5, when .debug_gdb_scripts is defined, automatically loads certain files from the current working directory, which allows local users to gain privileges via crafted files such as Python scripts.
3 CVE-2011-1658 264 +Priv 2011-04-08 2011-10-25
3.7
None Local High Not required Partial Partial Partial
ld.so in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.13 and earlier expands the $ORIGIN dynamic string token when RPATH is composed entirely of this token, which might allow local users to gain privileges by creating a hard link in an arbitrary directory to a (1) setuid or (2) setgid program with this RPATH value, and then executing the program with a crafted value for the LD_PRELOAD environment variable, a different vulnerability than CVE-2010-3847 and CVE-2011-0536. NOTE: it is not expected that any standard operating-system distribution would ship an applicable setuid or setgid program.
4 CVE-2011-1095 264 +Priv 2011-04-09 2012-01-26
6.2
None Local High Not required Complete Complete Complete
locale/programs/locale.c in locale in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) before 2.13 does not quote its output, which might allow local users to gain privileges via a crafted localization environment variable, in conjunction with a program that executes a script that uses the eval function.
5 CVE-2011-0536 +Priv 2011-04-08 2012-01-26
6.9
None Local Medium Not required Complete Complete Complete
Multiple untrusted search path vulnerabilities in elf/dl-object.c in certain modified versions of the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6), including glibc-2.5-49.el5_5.6 and glibc-2.12-1.7.el6_0.3 in Red Hat Enterprise Linux, allow local users to gain privileges via a crafted dynamic shared object (DSO) in a subdirectory of the current working directory during execution of a (1) setuid or (2) setgid program that has $ORIGIN in (a) RPATH or (b) RUNPATH within the program itself or a referenced library. NOTE: this issue exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2010-3847.
6 CVE-2010-3856 264 +Priv 2011-01-07 2011-02-12
7.2
None Local Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
ld.so in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) before 2.11.3, and 2.12.x before 2.12.2, does not properly restrict use of the LD_AUDIT environment variable to reference dynamic shared objects (DSOs) as audit objects, which allows local users to gain privileges by leveraging an unsafe DSO located in a trusted library directory, as demonstrated by libpcprofile.so.
7 CVE-2010-3847 59 +Priv 2011-01-07 2011-03-07
6.9
None Local Medium Not required Complete Complete Complete
elf/dl-load.c in ld.so in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) through 2.11.2, and 2.12.x through 2.12.1, does not properly handle a value of $ORIGIN for the LD_AUDIT environment variable, which allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted dynamic shared object (DSO) located in an arbitrary directory.
8 CVE-2010-0296 20 DoS +Priv 2010-06-01 2011-10-25
7.2
None Local Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
The encode_name macro in misc/mntent_r.c in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.11.1 and earlier, as used by ncpmount and mount.cifs, does not properly handle newline characters in mountpoint names, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (mtab corruption), or possibly modify mount options and gain privileges, via a crafted mount request.
9 CVE-2009-5064 264 +Priv 2011-03-30 2012-01-18
6.9
None Local Medium Not required Complete Complete Complete
** DISPUTED ** ldd in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.13 and earlier allows local users to gain privileges via a Trojan horse executable file linked with a modified loader that omits certain LD_TRACE_LOADED_OBJECTS checks. NOTE: the GNU C Library vendor states "This is just nonsense. There are a gazillion other ways to introduce code if people are downloading arbitrary binaries and install them in appropriate directories or set LD_LIBRARY_PATH etc."
10 CVE-2009-4135 59 +Priv 2009-12-11 2009-12-31
4.4
None Local Medium Not required Partial Partial Partial

6.9
None Local Medium Not required Complete Complete Complete
ltdl.c in libltdl in GNU Libtool 1.5.x, and 2.2.6 before 2.2.6b, as used in Ham Radio Control Libraries, Q, and possibly other products, attempts to open a .la file in the current working directory, which allows local users to gain privileges via a Trojan horse file.
12 CVE-2008-1946 264 +Priv 2008-07-28 2010-08-21
4.4
User Local Medium Not required Partial Partial Partial
The default configuration of su in /etc/pam.d/su in GNU coreutils 5.2.1 allows local users to gain the privileges of a (1) locked or (2) expired account by entering the account name on the command line, related to improper use of the pam_succeed_if.so module.

10.0
Admin Remote Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
Tar 1.15.1 does not properly warn the user when extracting setuid or setgid files, which may allow local users or remote attackers to gain privileges.

7.2
Admin Local Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
The POSIX Capability Linux Security Module (LSM) for Linux kernel 2.6 does not properly handle the credentials of a process that is launched before the module is loaded, which allows local users to gain privileges.
