A remote atttacker could use this flaw to cause a denial of service (mosh server to enter long for loop when trying to process the paramaters) via specially-crafted escape sequence string. Upstream ticket:  https://github.com/keithw/mosh/issues/271 Relevant upstream patch:  https://github.com/keithw/mosh/commit/9791768705528e911bfca6c4d8aa88139035060e References:  http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=673871  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=823943 Could you allocate a CVE id for this? (issue confirmed by mosh upstream) B) vte issue: ============= http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=673871#5 there is similar issue in vte too (Gnome bug private for now): https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=676090 Cc-ed Behdad Esfahbod on this post to clarify, what are the upstream plans regarding this report in vte and if the CVE id has been already assigned for it.
