evince vulnerability
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 17.04
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

Evince could be made to run programs if it printed a specially crafted
file.

Software Description:
- evince: Document viewer

Details:

It was discovered that Evince incorrectly handled printing certain DVI
files. If a user were tricked into opening and printing a specially-named
DVI file, an attacker could use this issue to execute arbitrary code.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 17.04:
  evince                          3.24.0-0ubuntu1.3
  evince-common                   3.24.0-0ubuntu1.3

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
  evince                          3.18.2-1ubuntu4.3
  evince-common                   3.18.2-1ubuntu4.3

  evince                          3.10.3-0ubuntu10.4
  evince-common                   3.10.3-0ubuntu10.4

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
