Reported by: ken@… Owned by: ken@…
Priority: high Milestone: 9.0
Component: BOOK Version: SVN

From redhat (still shown as 'reserved' at Mitre).

It was found that the .buildfont1 procedure did not properly secure its privileged calls, enabling scripts to bypass -dSAFER restrictions. An attacker could abuse this flaw by creating a specially crafted PostScript file that could escalate privileges and access files outside of restricted areas.
