CEDET is a Collection of Emacs Development Environment Tools written with the end goal of creating an advanced development environment in Emacs.
An untrusted search path vulnerability was discovered in CEDET.
A local attacker could escalate his privileges via a specially crafted Lisp expression in a Project.ede file in the directory or a parent directory of an opened file.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All CEDET users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-emacs/cedet-1.0.1"
NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are available since February 01, 2012. It is likely that your system is already no longer affected by this issue.
