Description Ville Skyttä 2006-07-26 16:25:47 EDT

"The fbgs framebuffer Postscript/PDF viewer in fbi before 2.01 has a typo that
prevents a filter from working correctly, which allows user-assisted attackers
to bypass the filter and execute malicious Postscript commands."

The CVE description says before 2.01, but 2.03 seems to be affected too.

Fix: s/-dSAVER/-dSAFER/ in fbgs
Comment 1 Adrian Reber 2006-07-27 12:05:16 EDT
I have released fixes for FC-3, FC-4 and FC-5. The build for devel failed on ppc
because of changes in the kernel headers. I need to investigate how to solve the
problem on devel and will then close this bug.
Comment 2 Adrian Reber 2006-07-28 05:47:18 EDT
also fixed on devel
