Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2005-727
2005-08-17
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : netpbm
Version : 10.28
Release : 1.FC3.2
Summary : A library for handling different graphics file formats.
Description :
The netpbm package contains a library of functions that support
programs for handling various graphics file formats, including .pbm
(portable bitmaps), .pgm (portable graymaps), .pnm (portable anymaps),
.ppm (portable pixmaps), and others.

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

pstopnm in netpbm does not properly use the "-dSAFER" option
when calling Ghostscript to convert a PostScript file into a
(1) PBM, (2) PGM, or (3) PNM file, which allows external
user-complicit attackers to execute arbitrary commands.

- fix CAN-2005-2471, unsafe gs calls from pstopnm (#165355)
