 Untrusted search path vulnerability in valgrind before 3.4.0
 allows local users to execute arbitrary programs via a Trojan horse
 .valgrindrc file in the current working directory, as demonstrated
 using a malicious --db-command options. NOTE: the severity of this
 issue has been disputed, but CVE is including this issue because
 execution of a program from an untrusted directory is a common
 scenario. (CVE-2008-4865)
