CVE-2017-16544 (busybox, debian_linux, esxi, n-tron_702-w_firmware, n-tron_702m12-w_firmware, ubuntu_linux)

In the add_match function in libbb/lineedit.c in BusyBox through 1.27.2, the tab autocomplete feature of the shell, used to get a list of filenames in a directory, does not sanitize filenames and results in executing any escape sequence in the terminal. This could potentially result in code execution, arbitrary file writes, or other attacks.
