Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200703-11 (Amarok: User-assisted remote execution of arbitrary code)

The Magnatune downloader doesn't quote the 'm_currentAlbumFileName'     parameter while calling the 'unzip' shell command.

Impact :

A compromised or malicious Magnatune server can remotely execute     arbitrary shell code with the rights of the user running Amarok on a     client that have previously registered for buying music.

Workaround :

Do not use the Magnatune component of Amarok.
