EulerOS 2.0 SP5 : ghostscript (EulerOS-SA-2020-1100)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 133901

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description

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

- In ghostscript before version 9.50, the .buildfont1 procedure did not properly secure its privileged calls, enabling scripts to bypass `-dSAFER` restrictions. An attacker could abuse this flaw by creating a specially crafted PostScript file that could escalate privileges and access files outside of restricted areas.(CVE-2019-10216)

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 package.
