Debian Security Advisory DSA-1510-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Thijs Kinkhorst
February 27, 2008 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : gs-esp / gs-gpl
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-0411

Chris Evans discovered a buffer overflow in the color space handling
code of the Ghostscript PostScript/PDF interpreter, which might result
in the execution of arbitrary code if a user is tricked into processing
a malformed file.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
8.54.dfsg.1-5etch1 of gs-gpl and 8.15.3.dfsg.1-1etch1 of gs-esp.

For the old stable distribution (sarge), this problem has been fixed in
version 8.01-6 of gs-gpl and 7.07.1-9sarge1 of gs-esp.

The unstable distribution (sid) will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your gs-esp and gs-gpl packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
