Vulnerability CVE-2003-0124


Published: 2003-03-18   Modified: 2012-02-12

Description:
man before 1.5l allows attackers to execute arbitrary code via a malformed man file with improper quotes, which causes the my_xsprintf function to return a string with the value "unsafe," which is then executed as a program via a system call if it is in the search path of the user who runs man.
