Synopsis
========

A vulnerability in Kpathsea allows remote attackers to execute
arbitrary commands by manipulating the -tex option from mpost program.

Background
==========

Kpathsea is a library to do path searching. It is used by TeX Live and
others TeX related software.

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

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 dev-libs/kpathsea < 6.2.2_p20160523 >= 6.2.2_p20160523

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

It was discovered that the mpost program from the shell_escape_commands
list is capable of executing arbitrary external programs during the
conversion of .tex files. The responsible function is runpopen()
(texmfmp.c).

Impact
======

A remote attacker, by enticing a user to open a specially crafted .tex
file, could possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
process.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Kpathsea users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot -v ">=dev-libs/kpathsea-6.2.2_p20160523"

Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these
packages.
