Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

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

- In Artifex Ghostscript before 9.26, a carefully crafted PDF file can trigger an extremely long running computation when parsing the file.(CVE-2018-19478)

- The gs_makewordimagedevice function in base/gsdevmem.c in Artifex Software, Inc. Ghostscript 9.20 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via a crafted file that is mishandled in the PDF Transparency module.(CVE-2016-10220)

- Artifex jbig2dec 0.13 has a heap-based buffer over-read leading to denial of service (application crash) or disclosure of sensitive information from process memory, because of an integer overflow in the jbig2_decode_symbol_dict function in jbig2_symbol_dict.c in libjbig2dec.a during operation on a crafted .jb2 file.(CVE-2017-7885)

- Artifex jbig2dec 0.13, as used in Ghostscript, allows out-of-bounds writes because of an integer overflow in the jbig2_build_huffman_table function in jbig2_huffman.c during operations on a crafted JBIG2 file, leading to a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execution of arbitrary code.(CVE-2017-7975)

- psi/ztoken.c in Artifex Ghostscript 9.21 mishandles references to the scanner state structure, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted PostScript document, related to an out-of-bounds read in the igc_reloc_struct_ptr function in psi/igc.c.(CVE-2017-11714)

- The gs_alloc_ref_array function in psi/ialloc.c in Artifex Ghostscript 9.21 allows 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. This is related to a lack of an integer overflow check in base/gsalloc.c.(CVE-2017-9835)

- The pdf14_pop_transparency_group function in base/gdevp14.c in the PDF Transparency module in Artifex Software, Inc. Ghostscript 9.20 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via a crafted file.(CVE-2016-10218)

- The fill_threshhold_buffer function in base/gxht_thresh.c in Artifex Software, Inc.
Ghostscript 9.20 allows 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.(CVE-2016-10317)

- The pdf14_open function in base/gdevp14.c in Artifex Software, Inc. Ghostscript 9.20 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (use-after-free and application crash) via a crafted file that is mishandled in the color management module.(CVE-2016-10217)

- The intersect function in base/gxfill.c in Artifex Software, Inc. Ghostscript 9.20 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (divide-by-zero error and application crash) via a crafted file.(CVE-2016-10219)

- The mem_get_bits_rectangle function in base/gdevmem.c in Artifex Software, Inc. Ghostscript 9.20 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via a crafted file.(CVE-2017-5951)

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.

Solution

Update the affected ghostscript packages.
