pstotext (1.9-4) unstable; urgency=medium

  * [main.c] Applied patch courtesy of Martin Ehmsen <ehmsen@gentoo.org> to
    unbreak pstotext on input from stdin which was broken by 1.9-3's security
    patch. (Closes: #356988)

 -- J.H.M. Dassen (Ray) <jdassen@debian.org>  Sun, 21 May 2006 20:14:12 +0200

pstotext (1.9-3) unstable; urgency=high

  * [main.c] Security fix. popen(3) was being used in a construct which could
    did not perform sufficient cleanup/quoting of filenames; these filenames 
    could come from untrusted sources like a web indexing service and could 
    thus be misused to execute shell code as the user running pstotext. The 
    use of popen(3) has been replaced by an explicit fork/pipe construct 
    which does not involve the use of a shell. (Closes: #356988)
  * [debian/control] Change the non-virtual package suggestion for the
    dependency on the "gs" virtual package to gs-gpl as gs-aladdin has become
    a transitional package.
  * [debian/control] Updated Standards-Version.

 -- J.H.M. Dassen (Ray) <jdassen@debian.org>  Fri,  5 May 2006 17:09:48 +0200

pstotext (1.9-2) unstable; urgency=high

  * [main.c] Security fix: call Ghostscript with -dSAFER to prevent malicious
    PostScript data from altering the filesystem or opening pipes to arbitrary
    external programs. This problem was remotely exploitable (through
    pstotext's registration with /etc/mailcap as a viewer application).
    The problem was identified and patched by Max Vozeler <xam@debian.org>.

 -- J.H.M. Dassen (Ray) <jdassen@debian.org>  Wed, 27 Jul 2005 18:43:55 +0200
