Amazon Linux 2 : ghostscript (ALAS-2018-1022)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 110195
SynopsisThe remote Amazon Linux 2 host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThe set_text_distance function in devices/vector/gdevpdts.c in the pdfwrite component in Artifex Ghostscript through 9.22 does not prevent overflows in text-positioning calculation, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted PDF document.
SolutionRun 'yum update ghostscript' to update your system.
