Subject: kiwi shell meta char injection

Hi,
my colleagues found the following:
https://github.com/openSUSE/kiwi/commit/f0f74b3f6ac6d47f7919aa9db380c0ad41ffe55f

CVE-2011-3180: The path of overlay files was not escaped which allowed
shell meta character injection via the chown(1) command-line.

https://github.com/openSUSE/kiwi/commit/88bf491d16942766016c606e4210b4e072c1019f
CVE-2011-4195: The image name was not escaped properly and can be used
in conjunction with other applications to execute arbitrary shell
commands.

Cheers,
Thomas
