# CVE-2023-4911: glibc: Looney Tunables: buffer overflow in ld.so leading to privilege escalation
## Summary
As described by [Red Hat](https://access.redhat.com/security/cve/CVE-2023-4911) and in [CVE-2023-4911](https://www.cve.org/CVERecord?id=CVE-2023-4911):
A buffer overflow was discovered in the GNU C Library's dynamic loader ld.so while processing the `GLIBC_TUNABLES` environment variable. This issue could allow a local attacker to use maliciously crafted `GLIBC_TUNABLES` environment variables when launching binaries with SUID permission to execute code with elevated privileges.
