Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2012-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Marc Schonefeld discovered that Ghostscript did not correctly handle
certain image files. If a user or automated system were tricked into
opening a specially crafted file, an attacker could cause a denial of
service and possibly execute arbitrary code with user privileges.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
Update the affected libgs8 package.
