ID CVE-2009-0792
Summary Multiple integer overflows in icc.c in the International Color Consortium (ICC) Format library (aka icclib), as used in Ghostscript 8.64 and earlier and Argyll Color Management System (CMS) 1.0.3 and earlier, allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code by using a device file for a translation request that operates on a crafted image file and targets a certain "native color space," related to an ICC profile in a (1) PostScript or (2) PDF file with embedded images. NOTE: this issue exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2009-0583.

    description Multiple security vulnerabilities has been identified and fixed in ghostscript : A buffer underflow in Ghostscript's CCITTFax decoding filter allows remote attackers to cause denial of service and possibly to execute arbitrary by using a crafted PDF file (CVE-2007-6725). Buffer overflow in Ghostscript's BaseFont writer module allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly to execute arbitrary code via a crafted Postscript file (CVE-2008-6679). Multiple interger overflows in Ghostsript's International Color Consortium Format Library (icclib) allows attackers to cause denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow and application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code by using either a PostScript or PDF file with crafte embedded images (CVE-2009-0583, CVE-2009-0584). Multiple interger overflows in Ghostsript's International Color Consortium Format Library (icclib) allows attackers to cause denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow and application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code by using either a PostScript or PDF file with crafte embedded images. Note: this issue exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2009-0583 (CVE-2009-0792). Heap-based overflow in Ghostscript's JBIG2 decoding library allows attackers to cause denial of service and possibly to execute arbitrary code by using a crafted PDF file (CVE-2009-0196). Multiple integer overflows in JasPer 1.900.1 might allow context-dependent attackers to have an unknown impact via a crafted image file, related to integer multiplication for memory allocation (CVE-2008-3520). Buffer overflow in the jas_stream_printf function in libjasper/base/jas_stream.c in JasPer 1.900.1 might allow context-dependent attackers to have an unknown impact via vectors related to the mif_hdr_put function and use of vsprintf (CVE-2008-3522). Previousely the ghostscript packages were statically built against a bundled and private copy of the jasper library. This update makes ghostscript link against the shared system jasper library which makes it easier to address presumptive future security issues in the jasper library. Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0 customers This update provides fixes for that vulnerabilities.

    description Specially crafted file could cause a heap-overflow in JBIG2 decoder (CVE-2009-0196), an integer overflow in ICC library (CVE-2009-0792), a buffer overflow in BaseFont writer module (CVE-2008-6679) or crash the CCITTFax decoder. (CVE-2007-6725) The previous security update introduced a regression that broke some printer drives. This new update fixes that issue.

    description It was discovered that Ghostscript contained a buffer underflow in its CCITTFax decoding filter. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted PDF file, an attacker could cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2007-6725) It was discovered that Ghostscript contained a buffer overflow in the BaseFont writer module. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted Postscript file, an attacker could cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2008-6679) It was discovered that Ghostscript contained additional integer overflows in its ICC color management library. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted Postscript or PDF file, an attacker could cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-0792) Alin Rad Pop discovered that Ghostscript contained a buffer overflow in the jbig2dec library. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted PDF file, an attacker could cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-0196) USN-743-1 provided updated ghostscript and gs-gpl packages to fix two security vulnerabilities. This update corrects the same vulnerabilities in the gs-esp package. It was discovered that Ghostscript contained multiple integer overflows in its ICC color management library. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted Postscript file, an attacker could cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-0583) It was discovered that Ghostscript did not properly perform bounds checking in its ICC color management library. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted Postscript file, an attacker could cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-0584). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    description A buffer underflow in Ghostscript's CCITTFax decoding filter allows remote attackers to cause denial of service and possibly to execute arbitrary by using a crafted PDF file (CVE-2007-6725). Buffer overflow in Ghostscript's BaseFont writer module allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly to execute arbitrary code via a crafted Postscript file (CVE-2008-6679). Multiple interger overflows in Ghostsript's International Color Consortium Format Library (icclib) allows attackers to cause denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow and application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code by using either a PostScript or PDF file with crafte embedded images (CVE-2009-0583, CVE-2009-0584). Multiple interger overflows in Ghostsript's International Color Consortium Format Library (icclib) allows attackers to cause denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow and application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code by using either a PostScript or PDF file with crafte embedded images. Note: this issue exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2009-0583 (CVE-2009-0792). Heap-based overflow in Ghostscript's JBIG2 decoding library allows attackers to cause denial of service and possibly to execute arbitrary code by using a crafted PDF file (CVE-2009-0196). This update provides fixes for that vulnerabilities. Update : gostscript packages from Mandriva Linux 2009.0 distribution are not affected by CVE-2007-6725.
