(Red Hat Issues Fix) Ghostscript Stack Overflow in zseticcspace() Lets Remote Users Execute Arbitrary Codes
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1019513
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1019513
CVE Reference:   CVE-2008-0411   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Feb 28 2008
Impact:   Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 8.61 and prior versions
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Ghostscript. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system.

A remote user can create a specially crafted ghostscript file that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a stack overflow in the zseticcspace() function in 'zicc.c.' and execute arbitrary code on the target system. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

Chris Evans of Google Security Team reported this vulnerability.

The original advisory is available at:

http://scary.beasts.org/security/CESA-2008-001.html

Impact:   A remote user can create a file that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.
Solution:   Red Hat has released a fix.

3. Description:

Ghostscript is a program for displaying PostScript files, or printing them
to non-PostScript printers.

Chris Evans from the Google Security Team reported a stack-based buffer
overflow flaw in Ghostscript's zseticcspace() function. An attacker could
create a malicious PostScript file that would cause Ghostscript to execute
arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2008-0411)

These updated packages also fix a bug, which prevented the pxlmono printer
driver from producing valid output on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

All users of ghostscript are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain a backported patch to resolve these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  Details on how to use 
the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/FAQ_58_10188

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
