Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2008-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2009-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Ulf HÃ¤rnhammar 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.
Update the affected enscript package.
