  <title>NTFS-3G: Privilege escalation</title>
  <synopsis>A vulnerability in NTFS-3G allows local users to gain root
    privileges.
  </synopsis>

  <affected>
    <package name="sys-fs/ntfs3g" auto="yes" arch="*">
      <unaffected range="ge">2016.2.22</unaffected>

  <background>
    <p>NTFS-3G is a stable, full-featured, read-write NTFS driver for various
      operating systems.
    </p>
  </background>
  <description>
    <p>NTFS-3G is affected by the same vulnerability as reported in “GLSA
      201603-04” when the bundled fuse-lite implementation is used.
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="normal">
    <p>A local user could gain root privileges.</p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>There is no known workaround at this time. However, on Gentoo when the
      “external-fuse” USE flag is set or the “suid” USE flag is not set
      then NTFS-3G is not affected. Both of these cases are the default
      configuration.
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>All NTFS-3G users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
    
    <code>
      # emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=sys-fs/ntfs3g-2016.2.22"
    </code>
