It was discovered that there was a potential privilege escalation vulnerability
in the “amanda” backup utility. The SUID binary located at /lib/amanda/rundump
executed /usr/sbin/dump as root with arguments controlled by the attacker,
which may have led to an escalation of privileges, denial of service (DoS) or
information disclosure.
