Can you assign a CVE Identifier to the following issue: Ghostscript included the current working directory in its library search path by default. If a user ran Ghostscript without the "-P-" option in an attacker-controlled directory containing a specially-crafted PostScript library file, it could cause Ghostscript to execute arbitrary PostScript code. With this update, Ghostscript no longer searches the current working directory for library files by default.  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=599564 Thanks, -- Ramon de C Valle / Red Hat Security Response Team
