Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:033: enscript

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the enscript package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:033 (enscript).



A vulnerability in the enscript program's handling of the epsf command used to
insert inline EPS file into a document was found. A possible hacker could create a
carefully crafted ASCII file which would make used of the epsf pipe command in
such a way that it could execute arbitrary commands if the file was opened with
enscript (CVE-2004-1184).

Additionally, flaws were found in enscript that could be abused by executing
enscript with carefully crafted command-line arguments. These flaws only have a
security impact if enscript is executed by other programs and passed untrusted
data from remote users (CVE-2004-1185 and CVE-2004-1186).

The updated packages have been patched to prevent these problems.
