Two security issues have been reported in resource-agents, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to gain escalated privileges.
The security issues are caused due to the "SAPDatabase" and "SAPInstance" scripts incorrectly setting the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH. This can be exploited to gain escalated privileges by e.g. tricking a user into running the script in a directory containing a malicious library.
