How to fix?

There is no fixed version for python-libnmap.

Overview

python-libnmap is a Python NMAP library that enabling you to start async nmap tasks, parse and compare/diff scan results.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Remote Code Execution (RCE) when the client application fails to validate the user input in the final nmap command line being executed on the underlying Opearting System. This can lead to the upload and execution of a custom LUA script using the Nmap Scripting Language (NSE).
