Title: Okular: Local restricted command execution (GLSA 202007-47)
Exploitable: local, remote
A logic error in Okular might allow an attacker to execute
Okular is a universal document viewer based on KPDF.
Vulnerable: < 19.12.3-r1
Unaffected: >= 19.12.3-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
A logic error was discovered in Okular, which results in trusting action
links within a PDF, possibly allowing execution of a binary.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted PDF
using Okular, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
Avoid opening PDFs from an untrusted source.
All Okular users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=kde-apps/okular-19.12.3-r1"
