    Package        : netrik
    Vulnerability  : insufficient escaping
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2006-6678
    Debian Bug     : 404233
    
    It has been discovered that netrik, a text mode WWW browser with vi like
    keybindings, doesn't properly sanitize temporary filenames when editing
    textareas which could allow attackers to execute arbitrary commands via
    shell metacharacters.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge), this problem has been fixed in version
    1.15.4-1sarge1.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.15.3-1.1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version
    1.15.3-1.1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your netrik package.
