A vulnerability has been discovered in Fossil allowing for
user-assisted remote execution of arbitrary code.

Background
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

Fossil is a simple, high-reliability, distributed software
configuration management system.

Affected packages

Description
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

Fossil does not properly validate SSH sync protocol URLs.

Impact
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

A remote attacker, by enticing a user to open a specially crafted URL,
could possibly execute arbitrary commands with the privileges of the
user running the application.

Workaround
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

All Fossil users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge –sync
# emerge –ask –oneshot –verbose “>=3Ddev-vcs/fossil-2.4″
