Untrusted startup file inclusion in Chicken Scheme
From: Peter Bex <Peter.Bex () xs4all nl>

Hi all,

I'd like to request a CVE identifier for an untrusted code execution
problem in Chicken Scheme: The interpreter loads a file called
".csirc" from the current directory on startup, without checking
whether it can be trusted.

Versions 4.8.2 after c6750af99ada7fa4815ee834e4e705bcfac9c137
are unaffected, as will 4.8.3 and later.  The first stable release
to include a fix will be 4.9.0.

For the upstream advisory info see
http://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/chicken-announce/2013-03/msg00002.html
and (important!) the errata:

Cheers,
Peter
