Description

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in ghostscript :

Buffer overflow in gs/psi/iscan.c in Ghostscript 8.64 and earlier allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via a crafted PDF document containing a long name (CVE-2009-4897).

Ghostscript 8.64, 8.70, and possibly other versions allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via a PostScript file containing unlimited recursive procedure invocations, which trigger memory corruption in the stack of the interpreter (CVE-2010-1628).

As a precaution ghostscriptc has been rebuilt to link against the system libpng library which was fixed with MDVSA-2010:133

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
