CentOS Errata and Security Advisory CESA-2017:2180

The Ghostscript suite contains utilities for rendering PostScript and PDF documents. Ghostscript translates PostScript code to common bitmap formats so that the code can be displayed or printed.

Security Fix(es):

  • A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in ghostscript's mem_get_bits_rectangle function. A specially crafted postscript document could cause a crash in the context of the gs process. (CVE-2017-7207)
