Problem description

Multiple security vulnerabilities has been identified and fixed
in ghostscript:

A buffer underflow in Ghostscript's CCITTFax decoding filter allows
remote attackers to cause denial of service and possibly to execute
arbitrary by using a crafted PDF file (CVE-2007-6725).

Buffer overflow in Ghostscript's BaseFont writer module allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly to execute
arbitrary code via a crafted Postscript file (CVE-2008-6679).

Multiple interger overflows in Ghostsript's International Color
Consortium Format Library (icclib) allows attackers to cause denial
of service (heap-based buffer overflow and application crash) and
possibly execute arbirary code by using either a PostScript or PDF
file with crafte embedded images (CVE-2009-0583, CVE-2009-0584).

Multiple interger overflows in Ghostsript's International Color
Consortium Format Library (icclib) allows attackers to cause denial
of service (heap-based buffer overflow and application crash) and
possibly execute arbirary code by using either a PostScript or PDF
file with crafte embedded images. Note: this issue exists because of
an incomplete fix for CVE-2009-0583 (CVE-2009-0792).

Heap-based overflow in Ghostscript's JBIG2 decoding library allows
attackers to cause denial of service and possibly to execute arbitrary
code by using a crafted PDF file (CVE-2009-0196).

Multiple integer overflows in JasPer 1.900.1 might allow
context-dependent attackers to have an unknown impact via a crafted
image file, related to integer multiplication for memory allocation
(CVE-2008-3520).

Buffer overflow in the jas_stream_printf function in
libjasper/base/jas_stream.c in JasPer 1.900.1 might allow
context-dependent attackers to have an unknown impact via
vectors related to the mif_hdr_put function and use of vsprintf
(CVE-2008-3522).

Previousely the ghostscript packages were statically built against
a bundled and private copy of the jasper library. This update makes
ghostscript link against the shared system jasper library which
makes it easier to address presumptive future security issues in the
jasper library.

Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0 customers

This update provides fixes for that vulnerabilities.
