EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : ghostscript (EulerOS-SA-2016-1050)
High Nessus Plugin ID 99813
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.
DescriptionAccording to the versions of the ghostscript packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- It was found that the ghostscript functions getenv, filenameforall and .libfile did not honor the -dSAFER option, usually used when processing untrusted documents, leading to information disclosure. A specially crafted postscript document could read environment variable, list directory and retrieve file content respectively, from the target. (CVE-2013-5653, CVE-2016-7977)
- It was found that the ghostscript function .setdevice suffered a use-after-free vulnerability due to an incorrect reference count. A specially crafted postscript document could trigger code execution in the context of the gs process. (CVE-2016-7978)
- It was found that the ghostscript function .initialize_dsc_parser did not validate its parameter before using it, allowing a type confusion flaw. A specially crafted postscript document could cause a crash code execution in the context of the gs process.
- It was found that ghostscript did not sufficiently check the validity of parameters given to the .sethalftone5 function. A specially crafted postscript document could cause a crash, or execute arbitrary code in the context of the gs process. (CVE-2016-8602)
