A vulnerability in policycoreutils could lead to local privilege escalation.
|Package||sys-apps/policycoreutils on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 2.2.5-r4|
|Unaffected versions||>= 2.2.5-r4|
policycoreutils is a collection of SELinux policy utilities.
The seunshare utility is owned by root with 4755 permissions which can be exploited by a setuid system call.
A local attacker may be able to gain escalated privileges.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All policycoreutils users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=sys-apps/policycoreutils-2.2.5-r4"
