Synopsis
========

CherryPy is vulnerable to a directory traversal that could allow
attackers to read and write arbitrary files.

Background
==========

CherryPy is a Python-based, object-oriented web development framework.

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

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 dev-python/cherrypy < 3.0.2-r1 *>= 2.2.1-r2
>= 3.0.2-r1

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

CherryPy does not sanitize the session id, provided as a cookie value,
in the FileSession._get_file_path() function before using it as part of
the file name.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to read and possibly
write arbitrary files on the web server, or to hijack valid sessions,
by providing a specially crafted session id. This only affects
applications using file-based sessions.

Workaround
==========

Disable the "FileSession" functionality by using
"PostgresqlSession" or
"RamSession" session management in your CherryPy application.

Resolution
==========

All CherryPy 2.2 users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
">=dev-python/cherrypy-2.2.1-r2"

All CherryPy 3.0 users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
">=dev-python/cherrypy-3.0.2-r1"
