Subject: CVE Request: devscripts (uscan) broken handling of filenames with


A flaw is reported in the uscan script of devscripts:

 From the bug:

If USCAN_EXCLUSION is enabled, uscan doesn't correctly handle filenames 
containing whitespace. This can be abused my malicious upstream to 
delete files of their choice.

Can a CVE please be assigned to it? devscripts looks like it will be in 
the next fedora release.
