Title: rxvt-unicode: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 201406-18)
Date: June 19, 2014
A vulnerability in rxvt-unicode may allow a remote attacker to
execute arbitrary code.
rxvt-unicode (urxvt) is a clone of the rxvt terminal emulator.
Vulnerable: < 9.20
Unaffected: >= 9.20
Architectures: All supported architectures
rxvt-unicode does not properly handle OSC escape sequences, including
those used to read and write X window properties.
A remote attacker could entice a user to run a specially crafted file
using rxvt-unicode, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All rxvt-unicode users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=x11-terms/rxvt-unicode-9.20"
