Package : most Version : 5.0.0a-2.2 CVE ID : CVE-2016-1253 Debian Bug : 848132

The most pager can automatically open files compressed with gzip, bzip2 and (in Debian) LZMA. Alberto Garcia discovered that Debian's version of most was susceptible for a shell injection attack that could be exploited to run arbitrary commands on the user's computer.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version 5.0.0a-2.2.

We recommend that you upgrade your most packages.
