Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2008:0155
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2008:0155.

Ghostscript is a program for displaying PostScript files, or printing them
to non-PostScript printers.

Chris Evans from the Google Security Team reported a stack-based buffer
overflow flaw in Ghostscript's zseticcspace() function. An attacker could
create a malicious PostScript file that would cause Ghostscript to execute
arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2008-0411)

These updated packages also fix a bug, which prevented the pxlmono printer
driver from producing valid output on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

All users of ghostscript are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain a backported patch to resolve these issues.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
