RedHat: 'nss_ldap' Buffer overflow vulnerability  04 October 2002 
These updates fix a potential buffer overflow which can occurwhen nss_ldap is set to configure itself using information stored in DNS,a format string bug in logging functions used in pam_ldap, and to properlyhandle truncated DNS responses.
RedHat: PostScript and PDF vulnerability  04 October 2002 
A local buffer overflow was found in gv version 3.5.8 and earlier. ggv versions 1.0.2 and earlier contain code derived from gv and therefore have the same vulnerability. An attacker can create a carefully crafted malformed PDF or PostScript file in such a way that when that file is viewed arbitrary commands can be executed.
