Date: June 19, 2014
Bug(s): #509174
ID: 201406-18

Synopsis

A vulnerability in rxvt-unicode may allow a remote attacker to
execute arbitrary code.


Background

rxvt-unicode (urxvt) is a clone of the rxvt terminal emulator.

Affected Packages

Package: x11-terms/rxvt-unicode
Vulnerable: < 9.20
Unaffected: >= 9.20

Description

rxvt-unicode does not properly handle OSC escape sequences, including
those used to read and write X window properties.


Impact

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.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All rxvt-unicode users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
