The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
Security Fix(es) :
- It was found that the ghostscript functions getenv,
filenameforall and .libfile did not honor the -dSAFER
option, usually used when processing untrusted
documents, leading to information disclosure. A
specially crafted postscript document could read
environment variable, list directory and retrieve file
content respectively, from the target. (CVE-2013-5653,
- It was found that the ghostscript function
.initialize_dsc_parser did not validate its parameter
before using it, allowing a type confusion flaw. A
specially crafted postscript document could cause a
crash code execution in the context of the gs process.
- It was found that ghostscript did not sufficiently check
the validity of parameters given to the .sethalftone5
function. A specially crafted postscript document could
cause a crash, or execute arbitrary code in the context
of the gs process. (CVE-2016-8602)
