AFFLIB multiple shell command execution
|afflib-multiple-command-execution (33964)||High Risk|
AFFLIB and applications using the affected library could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the system, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by the tools/afconvert.cpp or the aimage/ident.cpp file. An attacker could inject arbitrary shell commands via various parameters containing shell metacharacters, which would allow the attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the system.
No remedy available as of July 1, 2014.
