The rxvt terminal emulator 2.7.8 and earlier allows attackers to modify the window title via a certain character escape sequence and then insert it back to the command line in the users terminal, e.g. when the user views a file containing the malicious sequence, which could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary commands.
