Subject:  [RHSA-2005:039-01] Updated enscript package fixes security issues
Date:  Tue, 1 Feb 2005 09:50 -0500

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 - --------------------------------------------------------------------- Red Hat Security Advisory Synopsis: Updated enscript package fixes security issues Advisory ID: RHSA-2005:039-01 Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2005-039.html Issue date: 2005-02-01 Updated on: 2005-02-01 Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux CVE Names: CAN-2004-1184 CAN-2004-1185 CAN-2004-1186 - --------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. Summary: An updated enscript package that fixes several security issues is now available. 2. Relevant releases/architectures: Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (Advanced Server) version 2.1 - i386, ia64 Red Hat Linux Advanced Workstation 2.1 - ia64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 2.1 - i386 Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 2.1 - i386 Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64 Red Hat Desktop version 3 - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64 3. Problem description: GNU enscript converts ASCII files to PostScript. Enscript has the ability to interpret special escape sequences. A flaw was found in the handling of the epsf command used to insert inline EPS files into a document. An attacker could create a carefully crafted ASCII file which made use of the epsf pipe command in such a way that it could execute arbitrary commands if the file was opened with enscript by a victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-1184 to this issue. Additional flaws in Enscript were also discovered which can only be triggered by executing enscript with carefully crafted command line arguments. These flaws therefore only have a security impact if enscript is executed by other programs and passed untrusted data from remote users. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CAN-2004-1185 and CAN-2004-1186 to these issues. All users of enscript should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues. 4. Solution: Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied. Use Red Hat Network to download and update your packages. To launch the Red Hat Update Agent, use the following command: up2date For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the following Web page for the System Administration or Customization guide specific to your system: http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/ 5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/): 144683 - CAN-2004-1184 multiple security issues in enscript (CAN-2004-1185 CAN-2004-1186) 6.
