Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA072] DSA-072-1 groff

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-072-1 groff

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Zenith Parse found a security problem in groff (the GNU version of
troff). The pic command was vulnerable to a printf format attack
which made it possible to circumvent the `-S' option and execute
arbitrary code.

This has been fixed in version 1.15.2-2, and we recommend that you upgrade
your groff packages immediately.
