Fedora 10 : ghostscript-8.63-6.fc10 (2009-3709)

High Nessus Plugin ID 37055


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes several security flaws: CVE-2009-0792 (multiple integer overflows and missing upper-bounds checks in icclib), CVE-2009-0196 (missing boundary check in jbig2dec library), and CVE-2008-6679 (buffer overflow in pdfwrite device).

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.
