Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Supervisor: command injection vulnerability (GLSA 201709-06)
Severity: high
Exploitable: remote
Date: 2017-09-17
Bug(s): #626100
ID: 201709-06


A vulnerability in Supervisor might allow remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code.


Supervisor is a client/server system that allows its users to monitor
and control a number of processes on UNIX-like operating systems.

Affected Packages

Package: app-admin/supervisor
Vulnerable: < 3.1.4
Unaffected: >= 3.1.4
Architectures: All supported architectures


A vulnerability in Supervisor was discovered in which an authenticated
client could send malicious XML-RPC requests and supervidord will run
them as shell commands with process privileges. In some cases,
supervisord is configured with root permissions.


A remote attacker could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of
the process.


There is no known workaround at this time.


All Supervisor users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "=app-admin/supervisor-3.1.4"
