CVE-2017-8291

Status Candidate

Overview

Artifex Ghostscript through 2017-04-26 allows -dSAFER bypass and remote command execution via .rsdparams type confusion with a "/OutputFile (%pipe%" substring in a crafted .eps document that is an input to the gs program, as exploited in the wild in April 2017.

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3272-2

Ubuntu Security Notice 3272-2 - USN-3272-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Ghostscript. This change introduced a regression when the DELAYBIND feature is used with the eqproc command. This update fixes the problem. It was discovered that Ghostscript improperly handled parameters to the rsdparams and eqproc commands. An attacker could use these to craft a malicious document that could disable -dSAFER protections, thereby allowing the execution of arbitrary code, or cause a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-1230-01
Posted May 12, 2017
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-1230-01 - 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 ghostscript did not properly validate the parameters passed to the .rsdparams and .eqproc functions. During its execution, a specially crafted PostScript document could execute code in the context of the ghostscript process, bypassing the -dSAFER protection.

An attacker could use these to craft a malicious document that could disable -dSAFER protections, thereby allowing the execution of arbitrary code, or cause a denial of service. Kamil Frankowicz discovered a use-after-free vulnerability in the color management module of Ghostscript. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.
