Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-0014-01

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-0014-01 - The Ghostscript suite contains utilities for rendering PostScript and PDF documents. Ghostscript translates PostScript code to common bitmap formats so that the code can be displayed or printed. Security Fix: It was found that the ghostscript functions getenv, filenameforall and .libfile did not honor the -dSAFER option, usually used when processing untrusted documents, leading to information disclosure. A specially crafted postscript document could read environment variable, list directory and retrieve file content respectively, from the target.

3. Description:

The Ghostscript suite contains utilities for rendering PostScript and PDF
documents. Ghostscript translates PostScript code to common bitmap formats
so that the code can be displayed or printed.

Security Fix(es):

* It was found that the ghostscript functions getenv, filenameforall and
.libfile did not honor the -dSAFER option, usually used when processing
untrusted documents, leading to information disclosure. A specially crafted
postscript document could read environment variable, list directory and
retrieve file content respectively, from the target. (CVE-2013-5653,
CVE-2016-7977)

* It was found that the ghostscript function .initialize_dsc_parser did not
validate its parameter before using it, allowing a type confusion flaw. A
specially crafted postscript document could cause a crash code execution in
the context of the gs process. (CVE-2016-7979)

* It was found that ghostscript did not sufficiently check the validity of
parameters given to the .sethalftone5 function. A specially crafted
postscript document could cause a crash, or execute arbitrary code in the
context of the gs process. (CVE-2016-8602)
