Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 4 2005-728: netpbm

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the netpbm package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-728 (netpbm).

The netpbm package contains a library of functions that support
programs for handling various graphics file formats, including .pbm
(portable bitmaps), .pgm (portable graymaps), .pnm (portable anymaps),
.ppm (portable pixmaps), and others.

Update Information:

pstopnm in netpbm does not properly use the '-dSAFER' option
when calling Ghostscript to convert a PostScript file into a
(1) PBM, (2) PGM, or (3) PNM file, which permits external
user-complicit attackers to execute arbitrary commands.
