Description

It was discovered that Ghostscript contained multiple integer overflows in its ICC color management library. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted Postscript file, an attacker could cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-0583)

It was discovered that Ghostscript did not properly perform bounds checking in its ICC color management library. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted Postscript file, an attacker could cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-0584).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
