Debian GNU/Linux Advisories: eterm, mc

Apr 29, 2004, 21:14 (0 Talkback[s])

Debian Security Advisory DSA 496-1 security@debian.org

Package : eterm
Vulnerability : missing input sanitising
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2003-0068
Debian Bug : 244808

H.D. Moore discovered several terminal emulator security issues. One of them covers escape codes that are interepreted by the terminal emulator. This could be exploited by an attacker to insert malicious commands hidden for the user, who has to hit enter to continue, which would also execute the hidden commands.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 0.9.2-0pre2002042903.3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version eterm-0.9.2-6.

We recommend that you upgrade your eterm package.
