CVE-2018-6791

Priority
Description
An issue was discovered in soliduiserver/deviceserviceaction.cpp in KDE
Plasma Workspace before 5.12.0. When a vfat thumbdrive that contains `` or
$() in its volume label is plugged in and mounted through the device
notifier, it's interpreted as a shell command, leading to a possibility of
arbitrary command execution. An example of an offending volume label is
"$(touch b)" -- this will create a file called b in the home folder.
