A vulnerability in Scala could result in privilege escalation.
|Package||dev-lang/scala on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 2.12.4|
|Unaffected versions||>= 2.12.4|
Scala combines object-oriented and functional programming in one concise, high-level language.
It was discovered that Scala’s compilation daemon does not properly manage permissions for private files.
A local attacker could escalate privileges.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Scala users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-lang/scala-2.12.4"
