Synopsis
========

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

Background
==========

Postfix is a mail server and an alternative to the widely-used Sendmail
program.

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

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 mail-mta/postfix < 3.1.6 >= 3.1.6

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

By default, Berkeley DB reads a DB_CONFIG configuration file from the
current working directory. This is an undocumented behavior.

Impact
======

A local attacker, by using a specially crafted DG_CONFIG file, could
possibly escalate privileges to the root group.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Postfix users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=mail-mta/postfix-3.1.6"
