    Package        : kitty
    CVE ID         : CVE-2020-35605
    
    Stephane Chauveau discovered that the graphics protocol implementation in
    Kitty, a GPU-based terminal emulator, did not sanitise a filename when
    returning an error message, which could result in the execution of
    arbitrary shell commands when displaying a file with cat.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.13.3-1+deb10u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your kitty packages.
