Title: GPL Ghostscript: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201412-17)
Date: December 13, 2014
Bug(s): #264594, #300192, #332061, #437654
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in GPL Ghostscript, the
worst of which may allow execution of arbitrary code.
Ghostscript is an interpreter for the PostScript language and for PDF.
Vulnerable: < 9.10-r2
Unaffected: >= 9.10-r2
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in GPL Ghostscript. Please
review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
A context-dependent attacker could entice a user to open a specially
crafted PostScript file or PDF using GPL Ghostscript, possibly resulting
in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a
Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All GPL Ghostscript users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
