Synopsis
========

SPE files are installed with world-writeable permissions, potentially
leading to privilege escalation.

Background
==========

SPE is a cross-platform Python Integrated Development Environment
(IDE).

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package       /   Vulnerable   /                       Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  dev-util/spe      < 0.7.5c-r1                        >= 0.7.5c-r1
                                                         *>= 0.5.1f-r1

Description
===========

It was reported that due to an oversight all SPE's files are set as
world-writeable.

Impact
======

A local attacker could modify the executable files, causing arbitrary
code to be executed with the permissions of the user running SPE.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All SPE users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose dev-util/spe

Availability
============

This GLSA and any updates to it are available for viewing at
the Gentoo Security Website:
