Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: enscript
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2005:033
Date: February 10th, 2005

Affected versions: 10.0, 10.1, Corporate 3.0,
Corporate Server 2.1
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A vulnerability in the enscript program's handling of the epsf command used to insert inline EPS file into a document was found. An attacker 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 (CAN-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 (CAN-2004-1185 and CAN-2004-1186).

The updated packages have been patched to prevent these problems.
