GENTOO LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 200306-14
--------------------------------------------------------------------

          PACKAGE : tcptraceroute
          SUMMARY : problems dropping root privileges
             DATE : 2003-06-28 20:21 UTC
          EXPLOIT : local
VERSIONS AFFECTED : <tcptraceroute-1.4-r1
    FIXED VERSION : >=tcptraceroute-1.4
              CVE : CAN-2003-0489

--------------------------------------------------------------------

quote from cve:

"tcptraceroute 1.4 and earlier does not fully drop privileges after
obtaining a file descriptor for capturing packets, which may allow
local users to gain access to the descriptor via a separate
vulnerability in tcptraceroute."

SOLUTION

It is recommended that all Gentoo Linux users who are running
net-analyzer/tcptraceroute upgrade to tcptraceroute-1.4-r1 as follows

emerge sync
emerge tcptraceroute
emerge clean
