Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2003:182 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Important: ghostscript security update 2003-06-17 04:00:00 UTC

Description Mark J. Cox 2003-05-19 12:38:25 UTC
A bug in ghostscript allows a malicious postscript file to 
execute arbitrary commands when viewed even when using the -dSAFER flag.

However, the -dPARANOIDSAFER flag, used by printing etc, continues to block this
vulnerability, so the vulnerability has limited effect.

CVE applied for
CERT VU#538404
