Synopsis
========

A vulnerability in OpenDoas could lead to privilege escalation.

Background
==========

OpenDoas allows users to run commands as other users.

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

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  app-admin/doas               < 6.8.1                    >= 6.8.1

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

OpenDoas does not properly filter the PATH variable from the resulting
shell after escalating privileges.

Impact
======

A local attacker with control of a user's PATH variable could escalate
privileges if that user uses OpenDoas with a poisoned PATH variable.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All OpenDoas users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-admin/doas-6.8.1"
