ghostscript vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 10.10
- Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

Summary:

Ghostscript could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it
opened a specially crafted file.

Software Description:
- ghostscript: The GPL Ghostscript PostScript/PDF interpreter

Details:

It was discovered that Ghostscript did not correctly handle memory
allocation when parsing certain malformed JPEG-2000 images. If a user or
automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted image, an
attacker could cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary
code with user privileges. (CVE-2008-3520)

It was discovered that Ghostscript did not correctly handle certain
formatting operations when parsing JPEG-2000 images. If a user or automated
system were tricked into opening a specially crafted image, an attacker
could cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code with
user privileges. (CVE-2008-3522)

It was discovered that Ghostscript incorrectly handled certain malformed
TrueType fonts. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a
document containing a specially crafted font, an attacker could cause a
denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code with user privileges.
This issue only affected Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. (CVE-2009-3743)

It was discovered that Ghostscript incorrectly handled certain malformed
Type 2 fonts. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a
document containing a specially crafted font, an attacker could cause a
denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code with user privileges.
This issue only affected Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. (CVE-2010-4054)

Jonathan Foote discovered that Ghostscript incorrectly handled certain
malformed JPEG-2000 image files. If a user or automated system were tricked
into opening a specially crafted JPEG-2000 image file, an attacker could
cause Ghostscript to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code with user
privileges. (CVE-2011-4516, CVE-2011-4517)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 10.10:
libgs8 8.71.dfsg.2-0ubuntu7.1

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
libgs8 8.71.dfsg.1-0ubuntu5.4

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
