Vulnerability Scan Summary
DSA-304-1 lv

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Leonard Stiles discovered that lv, a multilingual file viewer, would
read options from a configuration file in the current directory.
Because such a file could be placed there by a malicious user, and lv
configuration options can be used to execute commands, this
represented a security vulnerability. A possible hacker could gain the
rights of the user invoking lv, including root.
