Synopsis
=======
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in GNUstep Base library, the
worst of which allow execution of arbitrary code.

Background
=========
GNUstep Base library is a free software package implementing the API of
the OpenStep Foundation Kit (tm), including later additions.

Affected packages
================
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  gnustep-base/gnustep-base
                                  < 1.20.1                  >= 1.20.1

Description
==========
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in GNUstep Base library.
Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact
=====
A context-dependent attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code. A
local attacker could possibly read arbitrary files.

Workaround
=========
There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=========
All GNUstep Base library users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot -v ">=gnustep-base/gnustep-base-1.20.1"

Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these
packages.

NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since August 13, 2010. It is likely that your system is
already no longer affected by this issue.
