CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT
- -----------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE   : ghostscript
SUMMARY   : Temporary files and dynamic libraries
DATE      : 2000-11-23 15:26:00
ID        : CLSA-2000:343
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 4.0, 4.0es, 4.1, 4.2, 5.0, prg gráficos, ecommerce, 5.1

- ----------------------------------------------------------------------

DESCRIPTION
 "ghostscript" as shipped with Conectiva Linux has two security
 problems that could be used to get higher privileges on a system:
 1) insecure temporary file handling could allow symlink attacks;
 2) a compile time option that was incorrectly being used made
 ghostscript pick up dynamic libraries in the current directory
 instead of the system directories.
 These problems are now fixed.


SOLUTION
 All users should upgrade to the new packages.
