Subject: CVE Request: sblim-sfcb: insecure LD_LIBRARY_PATH usage

found by grep.

/etc/init.d/sfcb uses:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

which is insecure if LD_LIBRARY_PATH is empty. It makes binaries use
libraries from the current directory, which is a problem if e.g. a
administrator
starts the sfcb service from a untrusted directory.

Also it uses it to set /usr/lib, a default path.

Just get rid of the whole if ... as it is useless.

This is now filed in Red Hat:
