Package        : mgetty
Version        : 1.1.36-2.1+deb8u1
CVE ID         : CVE-2018-16741


Two input sanitization failures have been found in the faxrunq and faxq
binaries in mgetty. An attacker could leverage them to insert commands
via shell metacharacters in jobs id and have them executed with the
privilege of the faxrunq/faxq user.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
1.1.36-2.1+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your mgetty packages.
