    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2006-6678

    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
    For the upcoming stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.15.3-1.1.
