Description

Two buffer overflow vulnerabilities were discovered in GNU enscript, which could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary commands via a specially crafted ASCII file, if the file were opened with the -e or --escapes option enabled (CVE-2008-3863, CVE-2008-4306).

The updated packages have been patched to prevent these issues.
