Description: Fix a RCE vulnerability in the bookmark command
 Newsbeuter didn't properly escape the title and description fields before
 passing them to the bookmarking program which could lead to remote code
 execution using the shells command substitution functionality (e.g. "$()", ``,
 etc)

Origin: upstream, https://github.com/akrennmair/newsbeuter/commit/96e9506ae9e252c548665152d1b8968297128307
