 Problem Description:

 A security issue was identified and fixed in ghostscript:
 
 An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was
 found in Ghostscript's International Color Consortium Format library
 (icclib). An attacker could create a specially-crafted PostScript or
 PDF file with embedded images that would cause Ghostscript to crash
 or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
 user running Ghostscript (CVE-2012-4405).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

 Update:

 Packages for Mandriva Linux 2011 is being provided.
