GLSA-200704-19 : Blender: User-assisted remote execution of arbitrary code
High Nessus Plugin ID 25107
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200704-19 (Blender: User-assisted remote execution of arbitrary code)
Stefan Cornelius of Secunia Research discovered an insecure use of the 'eval()' function in kmz_ImportWithMesh.py.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted Blender file (.kmz or .kml), resulting in the execution of arbitrary Python code with the privileges of the user running Blender.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Blender users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=media-gfx/blender-2.43'
