Update
======

New ways of bypassing Smarty's "Template security" were found and
fixed in Smarty. Users making use of that feature are encouraged
to upgrade to version 2.6.9.

The updated sections appear below.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 dev-php/smarty < 2.6.9 >= 2.6.9

Description
===========

A vulnerability has been discovered within the regex_replace modifier
of the Smarty templates when allowing access to untrusted users.
Furthermore, it was possible to call functions from {if} statements and
{math} functions.

Resolution
==========

All Smarty users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-php/smarty-2.6.9"

Availability
============

This GLSA and any updates to it are available for viewing at
the Gentoo Security Website:

http://security.gentoo.org/glsa/glsa-200503-35.xml

Concerns?
=========

Security is a primary focus of Gentoo Linux and ensuring the
confidentiality and security of our users machines is of utmost
importance to us. Any security concerns should be addressed to
security@gentoo.org or alternatively, you may file a bug at
