The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
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 (CVE-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
(CVE-2004-1185 and CVE-2004-1186).
The updated packages have been patched to prevent these problems.
Update the affected enscript package.
