Subject: CVE assignment: ghostscript stack-based overflow

FYI.  The researcher told me that some distros were notified 
pre-disclosure, but I had already assigned this CVE when I found out.

Name: CVE-2010-1869
Status: Candidate
Reference: MISC:

Stack-based buffer overflow in the parser function in GhostScript 8.70
and 8.64 allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code
via a crafted PostScript file.
