  <description>
    <p>Tomboy places a zero-length directory name in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH, which
      might result in the current working directory (.) to be included when
      searching for dynamically linked libraries.
    </p>
    
    <p>NOTE: This vulnerability exists due to an incomplete fix for
      CVE-2005-4790 (GLSA 200711-12).
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="normal">
    <p>A local attacker could gain escalated privileges via a specially crafted
      shared library.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>All Tomboy users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
    
    <code>
      # emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=app-misc/tomboy-1.4.2-r1"
    </code>
    
    <p>NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
      available since March 02, 2011. It is likely that your system is already
      no longer affected by this issue.
