DESCRIPTION:
A vulnerability has been reported in Monkeysphere, which can be
exploited by malicious, local users to perform certain actions with
escalated privileges.

The vulnerability is caused due to an input validation error in the
"monkeysphere-authentication" utility when processing the
"authorized_user_ids" file and can be exploited to execute arbitrary
shell commands by e.g. tricking an administrator into running the
utility with the "keys-for-user" command.

The vulnerability is reported in version 0.31 and 0.32.

SOLUTION:
Update to version 0.33 or later.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
