 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                       MDKSA-2006:214-1
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Package : gv
 Date    : December 4, 2006
 Affected: 2006.0, 2007.0, Corporate 3.0, Corporate 4.0
 _______________________________________________________________________
 
 Problem Description:
 
 Stack-based buffer overflow in the ps_gettext function in ps.c for GNU
 gv 3.6.2, and possibly earlier versions, allows user-assisted attackers
 to execute arbitrary code via a PostScript (PS) file with certain
 headers that contain long comments, as demonstrated using the
 DocumentMedia header.

 Packages have been patched to correct this issue.

 Update:

 The patch used in the previous update still left the possibility of
 causing X to consume unusual amounts of memory if gv is used to view a
 carefully crafted image designed to exploit CVE-2006-5864. This update
 uses an improved patch to address this issue.
