Subject: CVE Request - Ghostscript -- Multiple NULL ptr dereference flaws
 in JBIG2 decoder proved by PoC for CVE-2009-0658

Hello Steve,

  multiple NULL pointer dereference flaws were identified in the 
Ghostscript's JBIG compression format decoder (jbig2dec)
based on the PoC for recent Adobe Reader's 9.0, Adobe Acrobat's 9.0
(CVE-2009-0658) issue.



Affected versions: All GPL-Ghostscript versions from ghostscript-8.10
                   (contains initial implementation of jbig2dec) up
                   to latest upstream 8.64 one.

Could you allocate a CVE id?

Thanks, Jan.
