Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-0311-03 - The ibutils packages provide InfiniBand network and path diagnostics. It was found that the ibmssh executable had an insecure relative RPATH set in the ELF header. A local user able to convince another user to run ibmssh in an attacker-controlled directory could run arbitrary code with the privileges of the victim. Under certain circumstances, the "ibdiagnet -r" command could suffer from memory corruption and terminate with a "double free or corruption" message and a backtrace. With this update, the correct memory management function is used to prevent the corruption.
