How to fix?

There is no fixed version for Debian:11 coreutils.

NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply only to the upstream coreutils package and not the coreutils package as distributed by Debian. See How to fix? for Debian:11 relevant fixed versions and status.

chroot in GNU coreutils, when used with --userspec, allows local users to escape to the parent session via a crafted TIOCSTI ioctl call, which pushes characters to the terminal's input buffer.
