Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Blender: User-assisted remote execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 200704-19)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: April 23, 2007
Bug(s): #168907
ID: 200704-19

Synopsis


A vulnerability has been discovered in Blender allowing for user-assisted
arbitrary code execution.


Background


Blender is a 3D creation, animation and publishing program.


Affected Packages

Package: media-gfx/blender
Vulnerable: < 2.43
Unaffected: >= 2.43
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


Stefan Cornelius of Secunia Research discovered an insecure use of the
"eval()" function in kmz_ImportWithMesh.py.


Impact


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.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All Blender users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-gfx/blender-2.43"


References

CVE-2007-1253
