CVE-2012-3479

Status Candidate

Overview

lisp/files.el in Emacs 23.2, 23.3, 23.4, and 24.1 automatically executes eval forms in local-variable sections when the enable-local-variables option is set to :safe, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to execute arbitrary Emacs Lisp code via a crafted file.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2013-076 - Untrusted search path vulnerability in EDE in CEDET before 1.0.1, as used in GNU Emacs before 23.4 and other products, allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted Lisp expression in a Project.ede file in the directory, or a parent directory, of an opened file. lisp/files.el in Emacs 23.2, 23.3, 23.4, and 24.1 automatically executes eval forms in local-variable sections when the enable-local-variables option is set to :safe, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to execute arbitrary Emacs Lisp code via a crafted file. Additionally a problem was fixed reading xz compressed files.

Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 1586-1 - Hiroshi Oota discovered that Emacs incorrectly handled search paths. If a user were tricked into opening a file with Emacs, a local attacker could execute arbitrary Lisp code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. Paul Ling discovered that Emacs incorrectly handled certain eval forms in local-variable sections. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted file with Emacs, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary Lisp code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. Various other issues were also addressed.
