SWORD is a library for Bible study software.
Dan Dennison reported that the script used in SWORD does
not properly sanitize shell meta-characters in the "range" parameter
before processing it.
<impact type="high">
A remote attacker could provide specially crafted input to a vulnerable
application, possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary
shell commands with the privileges of the user running SWORD (generally
the web server account).
There is no known workaround at this time.
All SWORD users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=app-text/sword-1.5.8-r2&quot;</code>
