The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200412-18
(abcm2ps: Buffer overflow vulnerability)
Limin Wang has located a buffer overflow inside the put_words()
function in the abcm2ps code.
A remote attacker could convince the victim to download a
specially crafted ABC file. Upon execution, this file would trigger the
buffer overflow and lead to the execution of arbitrary code with the
permissions of the user running abcm2ps.
There is no known workaround at this time.
