Description

It was discovered that there was a shell injection vulnerability in pygments, a syntax highlighting package written in Python.

For Debian 6 Squeeze, this issue has been fixed in pygments version 1.3.1+dfsg-1+deb6u11.

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.
