DSA-1214-2 gv

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The original update provided in DSA 1214-1 was insufficient
this update
corrects this. For reference please find the original advisory text below:

Renaud Lifchitz discovered that gv, the PostScript and PDF viewer for X,
performs insufficient boundary checks in the Postscript parsing code,
which permits the execution of arbitrary code through a buffer overflow.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.6.1-10sarge2.
For the upcoming stable distribution (etch) this problem has been
fixed in version 3.6.2-2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.6.2-2.
We recommend that you upgrade your gv package.
