---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product     : Fedora Core 2
Name        : enscript
Version     : 1.6.1                      
Release     : 25.2                  
Summary     : A plain ASCII to PostScript converter.
Description :
GNU enscript is a free replacement for Adobe's Enscript

generated PostScript output to the specified printer or saves it to a
file. Enscript can be extended to handle different output media and
includes many options for customizing printouts.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Erik Sjölund 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:

CAN-2004-1184

    Unsanitised input can caues the execution of arbitrary commands
    via EPSF pipe support.  This has been disabled, also upstream.

CAN-2004-1185

    Due to missing sanitising of filenames it is possible that a
    specially crafted filename can cause arbitrary commands to be
    executed.

CAN-2004-1186

    Multiple buffer overflows can cause the program to crash.
