Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2003-05-19 08:38:25 EDT
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.
