The remote Ubuntu 16.04 ESM / 18.04 ESM / 20.04 LTS host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the USN-6364-1 advisory.

  • A divide by zero issue discovered in eps_print_page in gdevepsn.c in Artifex Software GhostScript 9.50 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via opening of crafted PDF file. (CVE-2020-21710)

  • Buffer Overflow vulnerability in clj_media_size function in devices/gdevclj.c in Artifex Ghostscript 9.50 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or other unspecified impact(s) via opening of crafted PDF document. (CVE-2020-21890)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application’s self-reported version number.
