MDKA-2005:045 : ghostscript
High Nessus Plugin ID 24471
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionNew ghostscript packages are now available that provide ghostscript 8.15.1 final and provide a number of bug fixes, including:
A fix for vertical japanese text.
A memory overflow in the 'lips4' driver was fixed.
A double-free in gsdevice.c was fixed.
A SEGV in the 'inferno' driver was fixed; this was because the struct 'inferno_device' was not created but it was accessed to its elements.
The shared X11 driver was not built with the correct linker command (CCLD instead of CC_SHARED).
The 'opvp' driver incorrectly assumed that CODESET was supported on all platforms that supported iconv.
Support in the 'cups' driver for CUPS_CSPACE_RGBW colorspace was added.
Other fixes are also included in these new packages.
SolutionUpdate the affected package(s).
