    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.
