                                            `Vulnerability title: SetUID/SetGID Programs Allow Privilege Escalation  
Via Insecure RPATH in HP Array Configuration Utility, HP Array  
Diagnostics Utility, HP ProLiant Array Diagnostics and SmartSSD Wear  
Gauge Utility Running on Linux  
CVE: CVE-2013-6216  
Vendor: HP  
Product: HP Array Configuration Utility, HP Array Diagnostics Utility,  
HP ProLiant Array Diagnostics and SmartSSD Wear Gauge Utility Running on  
Linux  
Affected version: 9.40  
Fixed version: N/A  
Reported by: Tim Brown  
  
Details:  
  
It has been identified that binaries that are executed with elevated  
privileges (SetGID and SetUID programs) have been compiled in manner  
that means they searched for libraries in insecure locations.  
  
SUIDFILE='/opt/hp/hpadu/bld/hpipcclient' SUIDFILELS='-rwsr-sr-- 1 root hpsmh 32752 Dec 13 2012 /opt/hp/hpadu/bld/hpipcclient' RPATH='' RPATHRELATIVE=yes RPATHLS=N/A RAPTHEXISTS=N/A ISBAD=yes  
SUIDFILE='/opt/compaq/cpqacuxe/bld/hpipcclient' SUIDFILELS='-rwsr-Sr-- 1 root root 32752 Dec 13 2012 /opt/compaq/cpqacuxe/bld/hpipcclient' RPATH='' RPATHRELATIVE=yes RPATHLS=N/A RAPTHEXISTS=N/A ISBAD=yes  
  
An attacker could place a malicious library in one of the affected  
directories, which would then be loaded when the affected program is  
run, leading to privilege escalation in instances where the program runs  
with privileges that the attacker does not have.
