Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.59075
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-390-2 (evince)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-390-2 (evince)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to evince
announced via advisory USN-390-2.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.10
Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 6.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

Details follow:

USN-390-1 fixed a vulnerability in evince. The original fix did not
fully solve the problem, allowing for a denial of service in certain
situations.

Original advisory details:

A buffer overflow was discovered in the PostScript processor included
in evince. By tricking a user into opening a specially crafted PS
file, an attacker could crash evince or execute arbitrary code with
the user's privileges.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 5.10:
evince 0.4.0-0ubuntu4.3

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
evince 0.5.2-0ubuntu3.2

Ubuntu 6.10:
evince 0.6.1-0ubuntu1.2

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
