Fedora Core 2 : enscript-1.6.1-25.2 (2005-015)
High Nessus Plugin ID 16267
SynopsisThe remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.
DescriptionErik Sjolund has discovered several security relevant problems in enscript, a program to converts ASCII text to Postscript and other formats. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following vulnerabilities :
Unsanitised input can causes the execution of arbitrary commands via EPSF pipe support. This has been disabled, also upstream.
Due to missing sanitising of filenames it is possible that a specially crafted filename can cause arbitrary commands to be executed.
Multiple buffer overflows can cause the program to crash.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected enscript and / or enscript-debuginfo packages.
