html2ps Update for Debian
Posted on: 11/09/2002 01:53 AM

A new html2ps security update for Debian GNU/Linux is available

The SuSE Security Team found a vulnerability in html2ps, a HTML to PostScript converter, that opened files based on unsanitized input insecurely. This problem can be exploited when html2ps is installed as filter within lprng and the attacker has previously gained access to the lp account.

These problems have been fixed in version 1.0b3-1.1 for the current stable distribution (woody), in version 1.0b1-8.1 for the old stable distribution (potato) and in version 1.0b3-2 for the unstable distribution (sid).
