Package : emacs
CVE ID : CVE-2022-48337 CVE-2022-48338 CVE-2022-48339

Xi Lu discovered that missing input sanitising in Emacs (in etags, the
Ruby mode and htmlfontify) could result in the execution of arbitrary
shell commands.

For the stable distribution (bullseye), these problems have been fixed in
version 1:27.1+1-3.1+deb11u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your emacs packages.
