 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2010:136

 Package : ghostscript
 Date    : July 15, 2010
 Affected: 2010.1

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been found and corrected in ghostscript:
 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
 As a precaution ghostscriptc has been rebuilt to link against the
 system libpng library which was fixed with MDVSA-2010:133
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
