Title: sysstat: Arbitrary code execution (GLSA 202007-22)
A use-after-free in sysstat was discovered which may allow
arbitrary code execution.
sysstat is a package containing a number of performance monitoring
utilities for Linux, including sar, mpstat, iostat and sa tools.
Vulnerable: < 12.2.1
Unaffected: >= 12.2.1
Architectures: All supported architectures
A double-free in sysstat’s check_file_actlst() function was
A local attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process or cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All sysstat users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-admin/sysstat-12.2.1"
