 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2010:134

 Package : ghostscript
 Date    : July 15, 2010
 Affected: 2008.0, 2009.0, 2009.1, 2010.0, Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in ghostscript:
 
 Stack-based buffer overflow in the errprintf function in base/gsmisc.c
 in ghostscript 8.64 through 8.70 allows remote attackers to cause a
 denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a
 crafted PDF file, as originally reported for debug logging code in
 gdevcups.c in the CUPS output driver (CVE-2009-4270).
 
 Ghostscript 8.64, 8.70, and possibly other versions allows
 context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via a
 PostScript file containing unlimited recursive procedure invocations,
 which trigger memory corruption in the stack of the interpreter
 (CVE-2010-1628).
 
 As a precaution ghostscriptc has been rebuilt to link against the
 system libpng library which was fixed with MDVSA-2010:133
 
 Packages for 2008.0 and 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended
 Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more:

 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
