Description Daniel Kjellin 2017-04-28 11:35:42 CEST
I do not know if Mageia ships a vulnerable version of ghostscript, but a zero-day exploit allowing code execution has been reported against (to my knowledge) all versions of ghostscript. A fixed release of ghostscript is available. I do not have access to test this against the version in Mageia, more details: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=861295 

This vulnerability has been reported to have been exploited already.
Comment 1 Rémi Verschelde 2017-04-28 12:30:01 CEST
See also bug 19542 with pending CVEs to fix for ghostscript in Mageia 5. Keeping this one separate for now, as it also affects Mageia 6 and I don't know yet if we'll fix all issues at once.
