Synopsis
========

A vulnerability in MAN DB allows local users to gain root privileges.

Background
==========

MAN DB is a man replacement that utilizes BerkelyDB instead of flat
files.

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

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 sys-apps/man-db < 2.7.6.1-r2 >= 2.7.6.1-r2

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

The /var/cache/man directory as part of the MAN DB package has group
permissions set to root.

Impact
======

A local user who does not belong to the root group, but has the ability
to modify the /var/cache/man directory can escalate privileges to the
group root.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All MAN DB users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=sys-apps/man-db-2.7.6.1-r2"

References
