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
version 0.4.0-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your evince package.
