Re: URGENT: Update to ld.so advisory

I looked through the source to check if there was to see if there
was any variable there that could be used to gain immediate root-access
on all Linux-systems, but found none...

Havn't found any other way to gain immediate root-access with this one,
w/o another bug being present to trash a library 'n then start a static
shell and put the lib there again...

or ofcourse, the system can have old libraries for new files... but I
guess that isn't very usual ;)

or if there's a way to use another cache-file...

Well.. If anyone have anyone has gotten another answer in their search,
then please let us (or atleast me ;)) know.. =)

Btw... While looking through the source I found an overflow for LD_PRELOAD
on the same line..... perhaps it's a remote vuln. for old dists who has
the old 'libroot' bug...
