KDE - shared library attacks using bad LD_LIBRARY_PATH



2nd Apr 2002 [SBWID-5223]
COMMAND

	shared library attacks using bad LD_LIBRARY_PATH

SYSTEMS AFFECTED

	  OpenLinux Server 3.1.1        All packages previous to kdeconfig-20011203-2  

	  OpenLinux Workstation 3.1.1   All packages previous to kdeconfig-20011203-2

PROBLEM

	In Caldera Security Advisory CSSA-2002-005.0, the startkde  script  will
	set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH  environment  variable  to  \"  /opt/kde2/lib:\"
	which includes the current  working  directory  in  the  library  search
	path. This exposes users to shared library attacks.
	

	

SOLUTION

	Upgrade to latest package.
