Package : reportbug
CVE ID : CVE-2014-0479

Jakub Wilk discovered a remote command execution flaw in reportbug, a
tool to report bugs in the Debian distribution. A man-in-the-middle
attacker could put shell metacharacters in the version number allowing
arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running
reportbug.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
version 6.4.4+deb7u1.

For the testing distribution (jessie), this problem will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 6.5.0+nmu1.

We recommend that you upgrade your reportbug packages.
