[DSA078] DSA-078-1 slrn

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-078-1 slrn

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Byrial Jensen found a nasty problem in slrn (a threaded news reader).
The notice on slrn-announce describes it as follows:



When trying to decode binaries, the built-in code executes any shell
scripts the article might contain, apparently assuming they would be
some kind of self-extracting archive.

This problem has been fixed in version 0.9.6.2-9potato2 by removing
this feature.
