Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2003-182: ghostscript

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the ghostscript packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


A ghostscript package fixing a command execution vulnerability is now
available.

GNU Ghostscript is an interpreter for the PostScript language, and is often
used when printing to printers that do not have their own built-in
PostScript interpreter.

A flaw has been discovered in the way Ghostscript validates some PostScript
commands. This flaw permits a possible hacker to force commands to be executed by
a print spooler by submitting a malicious print job. Note that using the
-dSAFER option is not sufficient to prevent command execution.

Users of Ghostscript are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which are not vulnerable to this issue.
