openSUSE Security Update : ghostscript (openSUSE-SU-2012:1289-1)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 74770
SynopsisThe remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThe following security issue was fixed in ghostscript :
Multiple integer underflows in the icmLut_allocate function in International Color Consortium (ICC) Format library (icclib), as used in Ghostscript 9.06 and Argyll Color Management System, allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted (1) PostScript or (2) PDF file with embedded images, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow. NOTE:
this issue is also described as an array index error.
SolutionUpdate the affected ghostscript packages.
