Synopsis
========

Executable files with insecure permissions can be modified causing an
unsuspecting user to run arbitrary code.

Background
==========

SilverCity provides lexical analysis for over 20 programming and markup
languages.

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

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------

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

The SilverCity package installs three executable files with insecure
permissions.

Impact

A local attacker could modify the executable files, causing arbitrary
code to be executed with the permissions of an unsuspecting SilverCity
user.

Workaround
==========

There are no known workarounds at this time.

Resolution
==========

All SilverCity users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
">=app-text/silvercity-0.9.5-r1"
