Package : plasma-workspace
CVE ID : CVE-2018-6791

Krzysztof Sieluzycki discovered that the notifier for removable devices
in the KDE Plasma workspace performed insufficient sanitisation of
FAT/VFAT volume labels, which could result in the execution of arbitrary
shell commands if a removable device with a malformed disk label is
mounted.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
version 4:5.8.6-2.1+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your plasma-workspace packages.

its security tracker page at:
