Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : enscript
Version : 1.6.1

Release : 28.0.2

Summary : A plain ASCII to PostScript converter.
Description :
GNU enscript is a free replacement for Adobe's Enscript program. Enscript converts ASCII files to PostScript(TM) and spools generated PostScript output to the specified printer or saves it to a file. Enscript can be extended to handle different output media and includes many options for customizing printouts.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Erik Sjlund has discovered several security relevant problems in enscript, a program to converts ASCII text to Postscript and other formats. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following vulnerabilities:

CAN-2004-1184

Unsanitised input can caues the execution of arbitrary commands via EPSF pipe support. This has been disabled, also upstream.

CAN-2004-1185

Due to missing sanitising of filenames it is possible that a specially crafted filename can cause arbitrary commands to be executed.

CAN-2004-1186

Multiple buffer overflows can cause the program to crash.
