A vulnerability has been discovered in Blender allowing for user-assisted arbitrary code execution.
|Package||media-gfx/blender on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 2.43|
|Unaffected versions||>= 2.43|
Blender is a 3D creation, animation and publishing program.
Stefan Cornelius of Secunia Research discovered an insecure use of the "eval()" function in kmz_ImportWithMesh.py.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted Blender file (.kmz or .kml), resulting in the execution of arbitrary Python code with the privileges of the user running Blender.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Blender users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-gfx/blender-2.43"
