Description

Issue Overview:

An unsafe use of string concatenation in a shell string occurs in FontManager. If the developer allows the attacker to choose the font and outputs an image, the attacker can execute any shell command on the remote system. The name variable injected comes from the constructor of FontManager, which is invoked by ImageFormatter from options.

Affected Packages:

python-pygments

Issue Correction:
Run yum update python-pygments to update your system.
