Synopsis
========

A vulnerability in Exim may allow local users to gain root privileges.

Background
==========

Exim is a message transfer agent (MTA) developed at the University of
Cambridge for use on Unix systems connected to the Internet.

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

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 mail-mta/exim < 4.89-r1 >= 4.89-r1

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

Exim supports the use of multiple "-p" command line arguments causing a
memory leak. This could lead to a stack-clash in user-space and as
result the attacker can, "clash" or "smash" the stack or
another memory
region, or "jump" over the stack guard-page.

Impact
======

A local attacker could obtain root privileges.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Exim users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=mail-mta/exim-4.89-r1"
