Id Description
16758 GDB Initialisation File Sourcing Insecure File Handling

GDB, the GNU debugger contains a flaw that may allow a malicious user to gain access to unauthorized privileges. The issue is triggered when the GDB reads the .gdbinit file from the current working directory. If a privileged user can be tricked to run GDB in another user's directory, and the current working directory contains a malicious .gdbinit, an attacker could gain escalated privileges.
