Synopsis
========

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

Background
==========

OCaml is a high-level, strongly-typed, functional, and object-oriented
programming language from the ML family of languages.

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

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 dev-lang/ocaml < 4.04.2 >= 4.04.2

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

A bad sanitization of environment variables: CAML_CPLUGINS,
CAML_NATIVE_CPLUGINS and CAML_BYTE_CPLUGINS in the OCaml compiler
allows the execution of raised privileges via external code.

Impact
======

A local attacker, by using specially crafted environment variables,
could possibly escalate privileges to the root group.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All OCaml users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-lang/ocaml-4.04.2"
