Overview

Nuitka is a Python compiler with full language support and CPython compatibility

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Arbitrary Command Injection due to insecure usage of the eval() method in the main() function. Exploiting this vulnerability is possible by replacing one of these environment variables - NUITKA_PYTHONPATH, NUITKA_NAMESPACES or NUITKA_PTH_IMPORTED to a malicious payload string.
