Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-1243-1 evince

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

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.
Evince embeds a copy of gv and needs an update as well.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in

For the upcoming stable distribution (etch) this problem has been
fixed in version 0.4.0-3.
