Publication date: 11 Apr 2023
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 8
CVE: CVE-2023-28879


In Artifex Ghostscript through 10.01.0, there is a buffer overflow leading
to potential corruption of data internal to the PostScript interpreter, in
base/sbcp.c. This affects BCPEncode, BCPDecode, TBCPEncode, and
TBCPDecode. If the write buffer is filled to one byte less than full, and
one then tries to write an escaped character, two bytes are written.
