Mandrake A vulnerability in the enscript program's handling of the epsf command used to insert inline EPS file into a document was found.

                 Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory

 Package name:           enscript
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2005:033
 Date:                   February 10th, 2005

 Affected versions:	 10.0, 10.1, Corporate 3.0,
			 Corporate Server 2.1

 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.
