Problem description

A problem was found in the cons.saver program by Maurycy Prodeus. The cons.saver program is a screensaver for the console that is included in the mc package. cons.saver does not check if it is started with a valid stdout, which combined with a bug in its check to see if its argument is a tty (it forgets to close the file-descriptor after opening the supposed tty), causes it to write a NULL character to the file given as its parameter.
