Gentoo Portage through 2.3.84 allows local users to place a Trojan horse plugin in the /usr/lib64/nagios/plugins directory by leveraging access to the nagios user account, because this directory is writable in between a call to emake and a call to fowners.
Ebuild in Gentoo may change directory and file permissions depending on the order of installed packages, which allows local users to read or write to restricted directories or execute restricted commands via navigating to the affected directories, or executing the affected commands.
The urlopen function in pym/portage/util/_urlopen.py in Gentoo Portage 2.1.12, when using HTTPS, does not verify X.509 certificates from SSL servers, which allows man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof servers and modify binary package lists via a crafted certificate.
Multiple untrusted search path vulnerabilities in Portage before 126.96.36.199 include the current working directory in the Python search path, which allows local users to execute arbitrary code via a modified Python module that is loaded by the (1) ys-apps/portage, (2) net-mail/fetchmail, (3) app-editors/leo ebuilds, and other ebuilds.
etc-update in Portage before 188.8.131.52 on Gentoo Linux relies on the umask to set permissions for the merge file, often resulting in permissions weaker than those of the original files, which might allow local users to obtain sensitive information by reading the merge file.
