F5 Networks BIG-IP : icclib vulnerabilities (SOL9990)

High Nessus Plugin ID 78232

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 device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

Multiple integer overflow flaws which could lead to heap-based buffer overflows, as well as multiple insufficient input validation flaws, were found in Ghostscript's International Color Consortium Format library (icclib). Using specially crafted ICC profiles, an attacker could create a malicious PostScript or PDF file with embedded images which could cause Ghostscript to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code when opened by the victim.

Solution

Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution SOL9990.
