GENTOO LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT

PACKAGE        :gv
SUMMARY        :Execution of Arbitrary Shell Commands
DATE           :2002-10-03 10:00 UTC

--------------------------------------------------------------------

OVERVIEW

GV can be tricked into executing arbitary shell commands.

DETAIL

When GV detects that the document is either a PDF file or a
GZip compressed file, it executes some commands with the help
of the system() function. Unfortunately, these commands
contain the filename, which can be considered as untrusted user
input. It is then possible to distribute a file (with a meticulously
choosed filename, that can even seems innocent) that causes execution of
arbitrary shell commands when it is read with GV.

SOLUTION

It is recommended that all Gentoo Linux users who are running
app-text/gv-3.58-r1 and earlier update their systems
as follows:

emerge rsync
emerge gv
emerge clean
