The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.
This update for ghostscript fixes the following security issues :
- Specially crafted postscript (.ps) files can cause
buffer overflows in ghostscript that could potentially
be exploited to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-1869 /
CVE-2010-1628 / CVE-2009-4270)
- By default, ghostscript reads certain initialization
files from the current working directory. Local
attackers could potentially exploit this to have other
users execute arbitrary commands by placing such files,
e.g. in /tmp. (CVE-2010-2055)
