Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:133: 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 MDKSA-2005:133 (netpbm).



Max Vozeler discovered that pstopnm, a part of the netpbm graphics utility
suite, would call the GhostScript interpreter on untrusted PostScript files
without using the -dSAFER option when converting a PostScript file into a PBM,
PGM, or PNM file. This could result in the execution of arbitrary commands with
the rights of the user running pstopnm if they could be convinced to try to
convert a malicious PostScript file.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
