Description Aleksandr Wagner (Kivak) 2017-07-28 09:37:01 UTC
From $URL:

psi/ztoken.c in Artifex Ghostscript 9.21 mishandles references to the
scanner state structure, which allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified
other impact via a crafted PostScript document, related to an
out-of-bounds read in the igc_reloc_struct_ptr function in psi/igc.c.

Comment 1 Ian Zimmerman 2017-09-30 16:25:41 UTC
See also [1].  This is included in [2] which also fixes several other ghostscript CVEs, none of which seem to exist as bugs in gentoo.


Comment 2 Teika kazura 2018-04-15 03:40:25 UTC
This bug should depend on bug 634616, a bump request to ghostscript 9.22.
Comment 3 Michael Boyle 2018-05-22 02:11:31 UTC
Maintainers, the fix is in the 9.22. Please bump.
