<p>rxvt-unicode (urxvt) is a clone of the rxvt terminal emulator.</p>
<p>rxvt-unicode does not properly handle OSC escape sequences, including
those used to read and write X window properties.
<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker could entice a user to run a specially crafted file
using rxvt-unicode, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All rxvt-unicode users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=x11-terms/rxvt-unicode-9.20"
