Description (partial)

A vulnerability has been identified in RHEL regarding gcc and gcc4.

This can only be exploited locally. If a local attacker is able to trick a local user into
running a Java application
(which uses a function to load native libraries,) from within an attacker-controlled directory
containing a malicious library or module, the attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user running the Java application.
