Description

A vulnerability exists in KGhostview, part of the kdegraphics package. It includes a DSC 3.0 parser from GSview then is vulnerable to a buffer overflow while parsing a specially crafted .ps file. It also contains code from gv which is vulnerable to a similar buffer overflow triggered by malformed PostScript and PDF files. This has been fixed in KDE 3.0.4 and patches have been applied to correct these packages.
