Fedora Core 3 : netpbm-10.28-1.FC3.2 (2005-727)

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

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.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
