This could allow an attacker who is able to start a build of an rpm with a specially crafted spec file within mock's environment to elevate their priviliges and escape the chroot. Red Hat bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1375490 Upstream patch: https://github.com/rpm-software-management/mock/commit/8b02f43beadacf6911200b48d94e39e891a41da9 -- Martin Prpič / Red Hat Product Security
