CVE-2018-16585

Priority
Description
** DISPUTED ** An issue was discovered in Artifex Ghostscript before 9.24.
The .setdistillerkeys PostScript command is accepted even though it is not
intended for use during document processing (e.g., after the startup
phase). This leads to memory corruption, allowing remote attackers able to
supply crafted PostScript to crash the interpreter or possibly have
unspecified other impact. Note: A reputable source believes that the CVE is
potentially a duplicate of CVE-2018-15910 as explained in Red Hat bugzilla
(https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1626193).
