GENTOO LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT
--------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE :links
SUMMARY :local exploit possibility
DATE :Tue Oct 1 03:47:05 UTC 2002

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

OVERVIEW

The /usr/bin/links2 binary installed by links-2* ebuilds have had their
setuid bits set by default if the package was compiled with "svga" in
USE.


DETAIL

The fact that this can be used in a local root exploit prompted us to
change the default setting. Now, if the user has "svga" in USE, they
will
be prompted in the postinstall stages to set the suid bit on
/usr/bin/links2 themselves. For details please see:

http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8556

SOLUTION

It is recommended that all Gentoo Linux users who are running
net-www/links-2* update their systems
as follows:

emerge rsync
emerge links
emerge clean
