    It has been discovered that the bcfg2 server, a configuration management
    server for bcfg2 clients, is not properly sanitizing input from bcfg2
    clients before passing it to various shell commands.  This enables an
    attacker in control of a bcfg2 client to execute arbitrary commands on
    the server with root privileges.
