 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability 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).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
