Vulnerability Assessment Summary

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Toth Andras discovered that the fbgs framebuffer postscript/PDF viewer
contains a typo, which prevents the intended filter against malicious
postscript commands from working correctly. This might lead to the
deletion of user data when displaying a postscript file.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.01-1.2sarge2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your fbi package.
