John Lightsey discovered a format string injection vulnerability in the localisation of templates in Movable Type, a blogging system. An unauthenticated remote attacker could take advantage of this flaw to execute arbitrary code as the web server user.

We recommend that you upgrade your movabletype-opensource packages.
