    Package        : evince
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : local(remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-5864
    Renaud Lifchitz discovered that gv, the PostScript and PDF viewer for X,
    performs insufficient boundary checks in the Postscript parsing code,
    which allows the execution of arbitrary code through a buffer overflow.
    Evince embeds a copy of gv and needs an update as well.
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.1.5-2sarge1.
    For the upcoming stable distribution (etch) this problem has been
    fixed in version 0.4.0-3.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in

    We recommend that you upgrade your evince package.
