Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2014:076
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : a2ps
Date : April 10, 2014
Affected: Business Server 1.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Updated a2ps packages fix security vulnerability:

Brian M. Carlson reported that a2ps's fixps script does not invoke gs
with the -dSAFER option. Consequently executing fixps on a malicious
PostScript file could result in files being deleted or arbitrary
commands being executed with the privileges of the user running fixps
(CVE-2014-0466).
