Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Update for evince RHSA-2017:2388-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'evince'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'evince'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
The evince packages provide a simple
multi-page document viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF), PostScript (PS),
Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) files, and, with additional back-ends, also the
Device Independent File format (DVI) files. Security Fix(es): * It was found
that evince did not properly sanitize the command line which is run to untar
Comic Book Tar (CBT) files, thereby allowing command injection. A specially
crafted CBT file, when opened by evince or evince-thumbnailer, could execute
arbitrary commands in the context of the evince program. (CVE-2017-1000083) Red
Hat would like to thank Felix Wilhelm (Google Security Team) for reporting this
issue.

Affected Software/OS:
evince on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 7)

Solution:
