Description Martin Prpič 2016-01-04 04:06:14 EST
A flaw was fixed in pitivi 0.95:

Double-clicking a file in the user's media library with a specially-crafted path or filename allows for arbitrary code execution with the permissions of the user running Pitivi.

An exploit scenario would require an attacker to provide a specially-crafted directory hierarchy or file path. Since Pitivi does not expose the path to the user, and a workflow of consuming content created by others is common when working with media files, such a scenario occurring is not hard to imagine.

This was fixed in version 0.95 with commit:
