High Nessus Plugin ID 38164

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9

Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

A buffer underflow in Ghostscript's CCITTFax decoding filter allows remote attackers to cause denial of service and possibly to execute arbitrary by using a crafted PDF file (CVE-2007-6725).

Buffer overflow in Ghostscript's BaseFont writer module allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly to execute arbitrary code via a crafted Postscript file (CVE-2008-6679).

Multiple interger overflows in Ghostsript's International Color Consortium Format Library (icclib) allows attackers to cause denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow and application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code by using either a PostScript or PDF file with crafte embedded images (CVE-2009-0583, CVE-2009-0584).

Multiple interger overflows in Ghostsript's International Color Consortium Format Library (icclib) allows attackers to cause denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow and application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code by using either a PostScript or PDF file with crafte embedded images. Note: this issue exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2009-0583 (CVE-2009-0792).

Heap-based overflow in Ghostscript's JBIG2 decoding library allows attackers to cause denial of service and possibly to execute arbitrary code by using a crafted PDF file (CVE-2009-0196).

This update provides fixes for that vulnerabilities.

Update :

gostscript packages from Mandriva Linux 2009.0 distribution are not affected by CVE-2007-6725.

Solution
