Synopsis
========

A vulnerability in TPP might allow a remote attacker to execute
arbitrary code.

Background
==========

TPP is an ncurses-based text presentation tool.

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

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 app-office/tpp < 1.3.1-r2 >= 1.3.1-r2

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

TPP templates may contain a --exec clause, the contents of which are
automatically executed without confirmation from the user.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted file
using TPP, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All TPP users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-office/tpp-1.3.1-r2"
