Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2019-08-23 20:19:10 UTC
CVE-2019-11461 (
  An issue was discovered in GNOME Nautilus 3.30 prior to 3.30.6 and 3.32
  prior to 3.32.1. A compromised thumbnailer may escape the bubblewrap sandbox
  used to confine thumbnailers by using the TIOCSTI ioctl to push characters
  into the input buffer of the thumbnailer's controlling terminal, allowing an
  attacker to escape the sandbox if the thumbnailer has a controlling
  terminal. This is due to improper filtering of the TIOCSTI ioctl on 64-bit
  systems, similar to CVE-2019-10063.
