Multiple vulnerabilities have been identified in Smb4K.
|Package||net-misc/smb4k on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 0.6.10a|
|Unaffected versions||>= 0.6.10a|
Smb4K is a SMB/CIFS (Windows) share browser for KDE.
Kees Cook of the Ubuntu Security Team has identified multiple vulnerabilities in Smb4K.
A local attacker could gain unauthorized access to arbitrary files via numerous attack vectors. In some cases to obtain this unauthorized access, an attacker would have to be a member of the sudoers list.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Smb4K users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-misc/smb4k-0.6.10a"
