Description

icc.c in the International Color Consortium (ICC) Format library (aka icclib), as used in Ghostscript 8.64 and earlier and Argyll Color Management System (CMS) 1.0.3 and earlier, allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code by using a device file for processing a crafted image file associated with large integer values for certain sizes, related to an ICC profile in a (1) PostScript or (2) PDF file with embedded images.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
