f0f97b94-3f95-11de-a3fd-0030843d3802ghostscript -- buffer overflow vulnerability

SecurityFocus reports:

Ghostscript is prone to a remote buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to properly bounds-check user-supplied input before copying it into a finite-sized buffer.

Exploiting this issue allows remote attackers to overwrite a sensitive memory buffer with arbitrary data, potentially allowing them to execute malicious machine code in the context of the affected application. This vulnerability may facilitate the compromise of affected computers.
