Problem description

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 (CAN-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 (CAN-2004-1185 and CAN-2004-1186). The updated packages have been patched to prevent these problems.
