    description An update for ghostscript is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Low. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link (s) in the References section. The Ghostscript suite contains utilities for rendering PostScript and PDF documents. Ghostscript translates PostScript code to common bitmap formats so that the code can be displayed or printed. Security Fix(es) : * A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in ghostscript's mem_get_bits_rectangle function. A specially crafted postscript document could cause a crash in the context of the gs process. (CVE-2017-7207) Additional Changes : For detailed information on changes in this release, see the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.4 Release Notes linked from the References section.

    description USN-3272-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Ghostscript. This change introduced a regression when the DELAYBIND feature is used with the eqproc command. This update fixes the problem. We apologize for the inconvenience. It was discovered that Ghostscript improperly handled parameters to the rsdparams and eqproc commands. An attacker could use these to craft a malicious document that could disable -dSAFER protections, thereby allowing the execution of arbitrary code, or cause a denial of service (application crash). (CVE-2017-8291) Kamil Frankowicz discovered a use-after-free vulnerability in the color management module of Ghostscript. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (application crash). (CVE-2016-10217) Kamil Frankowicz discovered a divide-by-zero error in the scan conversion code in Ghostscript. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (application crash). (CVE-2016-10219) Kamil Frankowicz discovered multiple NULL pointer dereference errors in Ghostscript. An attacker could use these to cause a denial of service (application crash). (CVE-2016-10220, CVE-2017-5951, CVE-2017-7207). 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.
