So we've had a bunch of this stuff over the years: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvekey.cgi?keyword=terminal+escape And now more recently: http://turbochaos.blogspot.ca/2014/08/journalctl-terminal-escape-injection.html https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1084577 And we have at least one more coming down the pipeline that's pretty widespread. Also I'm thinking of all those docker apps that log to STDOUT. So the basic TL;DR: please don't use really ancient terminal programs that are vulnerable to this stuff. It appears in testing that most (all?) of the Red Hat stuff is ok, but I can't speak for other vendors. -- Kurt Seifried -- Red Hat -- Product Security -- Cloud PGP A90B F995 7350 148F 66BF 7554 160D 4553 5E26 7993 Red Hat Product Security contact: secalert@...hat.com
