EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : ghostscript (EulerOS-SA-2017-1100)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 100693


The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.


According to the version of the ghostscript packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :

- It was found that ghostscript did not properly validate the parameters passed to the .rsdparams and .eqproc functions. During its execution, a specially crafted PostScript document could execute code in the context of the ghostscript process, bypassing the -dSAFER protection. (CVE-2017-8291)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected ghostscript package.
