Description Josh Bressers 2005-01-10 12:26:37 EST
This was reported to vendor-sec on 2004-01-07

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.
