Description

It was discovered that flightgear, a Flight Gear Flight Simulator game, did not perform adequate filesystem validation checks in its fgValidatePath routine.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
