A security flaw was found in the way osc, the Python language based command line client for the openSUSE build service, displayed build logs and build status for particular build. A rogue repository server could use this flaw to modify window's title, or possibly execute arbitrary commands or overwrite files via a specially-crafted build log or build status output containing an escape sequence for a terminal emulator.
The CVE identifier of CVE-2012-1095 has been assigned to this issue:
Once there is final upstream patch, please schedule updates for the versions, of the osc package, as shipped with Fedora 15, Fedora 16 and Fedora EPEL 6.
