This update of ghostscript fixes two security issues :

- Off-by-one error in the TrueType bytecode interpreter in Ghostscript in SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 and 11 products allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) via a malformed TrueType font in a document. (CVE-2009-3743)

- The gs_type2_interpret function in Ghostscript allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (incorrect pointer dereference and application crash) via crafted font data in a compressed data stream. (CVE-2010-4054)
