Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.55131
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2005:743
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2005:743.

The netpbm package contains a library of functions that support
programs for handling various graphics file formats, including .pbm
(portable bitmaps), .pgm (portable graymaps), .pnm (portable anymaps),
.ppm (portable pixmaps) and others.

A bug was found in the way netpbm converts PostScript files into PBM, PGM
or PPM files. An attacker could create a carefully crafted PostScript file
in such a way that it could execute arbitrary commands when the
file is processed by a victim using pstopnm. The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures project assigned the name CVE-2005-2471 to this issue.

All users of netpbm should upgrade to the updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to resolve this issue.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
