Roundup will make files owned by the user that it's running as accessable to a remote attacker.
|Package||www-apps/roundup on all architectures|
|Affected versions||<= 0.6.4|
|Unaffected versions||>= 0.7.6|
Roundup is a simple to use issue-tracking system with command-line, web, and e-mail interfaces.
Improper handling of a specially crafted URL allows access to the server's filesystem, which could contain sensitive information.
An attacker could view files owned by the user running Roundup. This will never be root however, as Roundup will not run as root.
There is no known workaround at this time. All users are encouraged to upgrade to the latest available version of Roundup.
All Roundup users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge sync # emerge -pv ">=www-apps/roundup-0.7.6" # emerge ">=www-apps/roundup-0.7.6"
