This vulnerability has been modified since it was last analyzed by the NVD. It is awaiting reanalysis which may result in further changes to the information provided.
** DISPUTED ** Integer overflow in the process_envvars function in elf/rtld.c in glibc before 2.5-rc4 might allow local users to execute arbitrary code via a large LD_HWCAP_MASK environment variable value. NOTE: the glibc maintainers state that they do not believe that this issue is exploitable for code execution.
View Analysis Description
Integer overflow in the process_envvars function in elf/rtld.c in glibc before 2.5-rc4 allows local users to execute arbitrary code via a large LD_HWCAP_MASK environment variable value.
Based on the analysis of Red Hat and several Glibc developers, Mandriva does not believe this to be exploitable.
After careful analysis by Red Hat and several Glibc developers, it has been determined that this bug is not exploitable.
