CVE-2011-4125

Published: 27 October 2021

A untrusted search path issue was found in Calibre at devices/linux_mount_helper.c leading to the ability of unprivileged users to execute any program as root.

Notes

AuthorNote
sbeattie
Ubuntu, from 10.10 (maverick) and after, uses the
udisk-based shell script that Martin Pitt wrote instead of the
upstream calibre setuid helper. In Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (lucid),
the calibre package does not include the setuid helper at all.
