Synopsis
========

A vulnerability in KAuth and KDELibs allows local users to gain root
privileges.

Background
==========

KAuth provides a convenient, system-integrated way to offload actions
that need to be performed as a privileged user (root, for example) to
small (hopefully secure) helper utilities.

The KDE libraries, basis of KDE and used by many open source projects.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 kde-frameworks/kauth < 5.29.0-r1 >= 5.29.0-r1
2 kde-frameworks/kdelibs < 4.14.32 >= 4.14.32
-------------------------------------------------------------------
2 affected packages

Description
===========

KAuth and KDELibs contains a logic flaw in which the service invoking
D-Bus is not properly checked. This allows spoofing the identity of the
caller and with some carefully crafted calls can lead to gaining root
from an unprivileged account.

Impact
======

A local attacker could spoof the identity of the caller invoking D-Bus,
possibly resulting in gaining privileges.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All KAuth users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
">=kde-frameworks/kauth-5.29.0-r1"

All KDELibs users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
">=kde-frameworks/kdelibs-4.14.32"
