|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: Roundup: Filesystem access vulnerability (GLSA 200408-09)
Date: August 11, 2004
Updated: May 22, 2006
Roundup will make files owned by the user that it's running as accessable
to a remote attacker.
Roundup is a simple to use issue-tracking system with command-line,
web, and e-mail interfaces.
Vulnerable: <= 0.6.4
Unaffected: >= 0.7.6
Architectures: All supported architectures
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"
Secunia Advisory SA11801
