Debian DLA-1504-1 : ghostscript security update
High Nessus Plugin ID 117487
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionTavis Ormandy discovered multiple vulnerabilities in Ghostscript, an
interpreter for the PostScript language, which could result in denial
of service, the creation of files or the execution of arbitrary code
if a malformed Postscript file is processed (despite the dSAFER
sandbox being enabled).
For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version
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.
