    Package        : gv
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : local(remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-5864
    Debian Bug     : 398292
    
    The original update provided in DSA 1214-1 was insufficient; this update
    corrects this. For reference the original advisory below:
    
    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.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.6.1-10sarge2.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (etch) this problem has been
    fixed in version 3.6.2-2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.6.2-2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your gv package.
