Description Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2021-11-16 18:35:31 UTC
A NULL pointer dereference in hush leads to denial of service when processing a crafted shell command, due to missing validation after a \x03 delimiter character. This may be used for DoS under very rare conditions of filtered command input.
