MDKA-2005:045: ghostscript Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the ghostscript package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKA-2005:045 (ghostscript).
New ghostscript packages are now available that provide ghostscript
8.15.1 final and provide a number of bug fixes, including:
A fix for vertical japanese text.
A memory overflow in the 'lips4' driver was fixed.
A double-free in gsdevice.c was fixed.
A SEGV in the 'inferno' driver was fixed
this was because the struct
'inferno_device' was not created but it was accessed to its elements.
The shared X11 driver was not built with the correct linker command
(CCLD instead of CC_SHARED).
The 'opvp' driver incorrectly assumed that CODESET was supported on all
platforms that supported iconv.
Support in the 'cups' driver for CUPS_CSPACE_RGBW colorspace was added.
Other fixes are also included in these new packages.
