An unsafe use of string concatenation in a shell string occurs in FontManager. If the developer allows the attacker to choose the font and outputs an image, the attacker can execute any shell command on the remote system. The name variable injected comes from the constructor of FontManager, which is invoked by ImageFormatter from options.

pygments/formatters/img.py:82

def _get_nix_font_path(self, name, style):
try:
from commands import getstatusoutput
except ImportError:
from subprocess import getstatusoutput
exit, out = getstatusoutput('fc-list "%s:style=%s" file' %
(name, style))
if not exit:
lines = out.splitlines()
if lines:
path = lines[0].strip().strip(':')
return path

Recommendation

shlex.quote should be used to ensure that an attacker cannot inject commands.
