Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : ghostscript (MDVSA-2009:095)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

A buffer underflow in Ghostscript's CCITTFax decoding filter allows
remote attackers to cause denial of service and possibly to execute
arbitrary by using a crafted PDF file (CVE-2007-6725).

Buffer overflow in Ghostscript's BaseFont writer module allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly to execute
arbitrary code via a crafted Postscript file (CVE-2008-6679).

Multiple interger overflows in Ghostsript's International Color
Consortium Format Library (icclib) allows attackers to cause denial of
service (heap-based buffer overflow and application crash) and
possibly execute arbitrary code by using either a PostScript or PDF
file with crafte embedded images (CVE-2009-0583, CVE-2009-0584).

Multiple interger overflows in Ghostsript's International Color
Consortium Format Library (icclib) allows attackers to cause denial of
service (heap-based buffer overflow and application crash) and
possibly execute arbitrary code by using either a PostScript or PDF
file with crafte embedded images. Note: this issue exists because of
an incomplete fix for CVE-2009-0583 (CVE-2009-0792).

Heap-based overflow in Ghostscript's JBIG2 decoding library allows
attackers to cause denial of service and possibly to execute arbitrary
code by using a crafted PDF file (CVE-2009-0196).

This update provides fixes for that vulnerabilities.
