Jeriko One discovered that newsbeuter, a text-mode RSS feed reader, did not properly escape the title and description of a news article when bookmarking it. This allowed a remote attacker to run an arbitrary shell command on the client machine.
newsbeuter on Debian Linux
This check tests the installed software version using the apt package manager.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 2.5-2+deb7u2. We recommend that you upgrade your newsbeuter packages.
