ack: code execution

Package(s):ack CVE #(s):CVE-2013-7069
Created:December 20, 2013 Updated:January 28, 2014

From the Red Hat bug report:

A flaw was found in the way ack, a tool similar to grep, processed .ackrc files. If a local user ran ack in an attacker-controlled directory, it would lead to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running ack. This issue affects versions 2.00 to 2.10 (such as the version in Fedora 19), and should be fixed in version 2.12. It does not affect versions below 2.00 (such as those in EPEL).
