Description

Chris Evans from the Google Security Team reports :

Severity: parsing of evil PostScript file will result in arbitrary code execution.

A stack-based buffer overflow in the zseticcspace() function in zicc.c allows remote arbitrary code execution via a malicious PostScript file (.ps) that contains a long Range array.
