    Package        : gnome-gv
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id         : CAN-2002-0838
    BugTraq ID     : 5808
    
    Zen-parse discovered a buffer overflow in gv, a PostScript and PDF
    viewer for X11.  The same code is present in gnome-gv.  This problem
    is triggered by scanning the PostScript file and can be exploited by
    an attacker sending a malformed PostScript or PDF file.  The attacker
    is able to cause arbitrary code to be run with the privileges of the
    victim.
    
    This problem has been fixed in version 1.1.96-3.1 for the current
    stable distribution (woody), in version 0.82-2.1 for the old stable
    distribution (potato) and version 1.99.7-9 for the unstable
    distribution (sid).
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your gnome-gv package.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
    
    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
