Description

Issue Overview:

An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was found in Ghostscript's International Color Consortium Format library (icclib). An attacker could create a specially-crafted PostScript or PDF file with embedded images that would cause Ghostscript to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Ghostscript. (CVE-2012-4405 __)
