Description Josh Bressers 2005-03-09 15:00:08 EST
xloadimage before 4.1-r2, and xli before 1.17, allows attackers to execute
arbitrary commands via shell metacharacters in filenames for compressed images,
which are not properly quoted when calling the gunzip command. (CAN-2005-0638)

Additionally, the gentoo bug covers a few other issues.
