Subject: CVE Request: click

Hi MITRE, all,

A vulnerability was discovered in the click package system:

It was fixed in 0.4.42 with:

This is an input sanitization bug where click assumed leading paths were always
prefixed with './' which, for example, allows a crafted click to ship a '.click'
directory to manipulate the click install process.

Can we get a CVE for this?
