Attempting to use KDirStat to permanently delete a directory that has a malicious name could result in arbitrary command execution. Original report: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=741659 The Debian report is about single quotes. On Fedora (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1077059) double quotes were needed. Can a CVE please be assigned if one has not been already? (And maybe it should be escaping ';' too if not already?) Thanks, -- Murray McAllister / Red Hat Security Response Team
