Debian DLA-1048-1 : ghostscript security update
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 102096
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionSeveral issues were found in Ghostscript, the GPL PostScript/PDF interpreter, which allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted PostScript document.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 9.05~dfsg-6.3+deb7u7.
We recommend that you upgrade your ghostscript packages.
NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpgrade the affected packages.
