    Package        : mgetty
    CVE ID         : CVE-2018-16741
    
    Two input sanitization failures have been found in the faxrunq and faxq
    binaries in mgetty, a smart modem getty replacement. An attacker could leverage
    them  to insert commands via shell metacharacters in jobs id and have them
    executed with the privilege of the faxrunq/faxq user.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.1.36-3+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mgetty packages.
