Fedora 8 : ghostscript-8.61-8.fc8 (2008-1998)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 31364
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update contains a back-ported fix for a security issue that allows malicious PostScript input files to cause a stack-based buffer overflow (CVE-2008-0411). This update also restores JPEG2000 support.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected ghostscript package.
