Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2009:0421 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Moderate: ghostscript security update 2009-04-14 17:54:02 UTC

Description Jan Lieskovsky 2009-04-01 15:45:37 UTC
A missing boundary check flaw was found in the Ghostscript's JBIG2 decoding library. An attacker could create a specially-crafted PDF file which could
cause Ghostscript to crash, or, potentially execute arbitrary code, when
opened by the victim.
