    Synopsis
    ========

    Roundup will make files owned by the user that it's running as
    accessable to a remote attacker.

    Background
    ==========

    Roundup is a simple to use issue-tracking system with command-line,
    web, and e-mail interfaces.

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

        -------------------------------------------------------------------
         Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
        -------------------------------------------------------------------
      1 net-www/roundup <= 0.6.4 >= 0.7.6

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

    Improper handling of a specially crafted URL allows access to the
    server's filesystem, which could contain sensitive information.

    Impact
    ======

    An attacker could view files owned by the user running Roundup. This
    will never be root however, as Roundup will not run as root.

    Workaround
    ==========

    There is no known workaround at this time. All users are encouraged to
    upgrade to the latest available version of Roundup.

    Resolution
    ==========

    All Roundup users should upgrade to the latest version:

        # emerge sync

        # emerge -pv ">=net-www/roundup-0.7.6"
        # emerge ">=net-www/roundup-0.7.6"
