Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKA-2005:045: ghostscript

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the ghostscript package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKA-2005:045 (ghostscript).

New ghostscript packages are now available that provide ghostscript
8.15.1 final and provide a number of bug fixes, including:
A fix for vertical japanese text.
A memory overflow in the 'lips4' driver was fixed.
A double-free in gsdevice.c was fixed.
A SEGV in the 'inferno' driver was fixed
this was because the struct
'inferno_device' was not created but it was accessed to its elements.
The shared X11 driver was not built with the correct linker command
(CCLD instead of CC_SHARED).
The 'opvp' driver incorrectly assumed that CODESET was supported on all
platforms that supported iconv.
Support in the 'cups' driver for CUPS_CSPACE_RGBW colorspace was added.
Other fixes are also included in these new packages.
