Description

Javantea discovered that pygments, a generic syntax highlighter, is prone to a shell injection vulnerability allowing a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code via shell metacharacters in a font name.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 1.5+dfsg-1+deb7u1.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 2.0.1+dfsg-1.1+deb8u1.

For the testing distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 2.0.1+dfsg-2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 2.0.1+dfsg-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your pygments packages.
