icclib PDF file buffer overflow
|icclib-pdf-bo (78411)||High Risk|
International Color Consortium (ICC) Format library (aka icclib), as used in Ghostscript and Argyll Color Management System, is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by an array index error. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted ICC profile in a PostScript or PDF file with embedded images, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
Apply the appropriate update for your system. See References.

- CVE-2012-4405: Multiple integer underflows in the icmLut_allocate function in International Color Consortium (ICC) Format library (icclib), as used in Ghostscript 9.06 and Argyll Color Management System, allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted (1) PostScript or (2) PDF file with embedded images, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow. NOTE: this issue is also described as an array index error.
