Posted on: 11/04/2008 02:20 AM

A new enscript vulnerability update is available for Ubuntu Linux. Here the announcement:

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-660-1 November 03, 2008
enscript vulnerability
CVE-2008-3863, CVE-2008-4306
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 7.10
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Ubuntu 8.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
enscript 1.6.4-7ubuntu0.2

Ubuntu 7.10:
enscript 1.6.4-11ubuntu0.2

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
enscript 1.6.4-12ubuntu0.8.04.1

Ubuntu 8.10:
enscript 1.6.4-12ubuntu0.8.10.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

Ulf H=E4rnhammar discovered multiple stack overflows in enscript's handling=
of
special escape arguments. If a user or automated system were tricked into
processing a malicious file with the "-e" option enabled, a remote attacker
could execute arbitrary code or cause enscript to crash, possibly leading
to a denial of service.
