Banshee 'LD_LIBRARY_PATH' Multiple Local Privilege Escalation Vulnerabilities

Banshee is prone to multiple local privilege-escalation vulnerabilities.

An attacker could exploit these issues by enticing an unsuspecting victim to run an application in a directory containing a malicious library file with a specific name. Exploiting these issues allow local attackers to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the affected application.

Banshee 1.8.0 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
