The ncurses library v4.2 and 5.0 contains exploitable buffer overflows which can be used to gain additional priveledge if there are SUID programs which use ncurses and the library implementation supports ~/.terminfo. Vulnerable programs found so far include Red Hat and SuSE cda, FreeBSD /usr/bin/systat, and OpenBSD /usr/bin/systat.

SuSE Security Advisory - A vulnerability has been found in the ncurses library, which is used by many text based applications. Insufficient boundary checking leads to a buffer overflow if a user supplies a specially drafted terminfo database file. If an ncurses-linked binary is installed setuid root, it is possible for a local attacker to exploit this hole and gain local root access. SuSE recommends patching this vulnerability by removing the SUID bits from xaos, screen, and cda.
