Ghostscript Exposed System Operators
ghostscript: $error object can expose system operators in saved execution stack. 

CVE-2018-18073


I've found a way of getting access to .forceput even after the fix in <a href="/p/project-zero/issues/detail?id=1682" title="ghostscript: executeonly bypass with errorhandler setup" class="closed_ref" rel="nofollow"> bug 1682 </a>, you can pull it out of the saved execution stack in $error:

Notice the .forceput in there...

See <a href="/p/project-zero/issues/detail?id=1682" title="ghostscript: executeonly bypass with errorhandler setup" class="closed_ref" rel="nofollow"> bug 1682 </a> for a full exploit using .forceput, this code can just be plugged in and the full exploit will still work.


This bug is subject to a 90 day disclosure deadline. After 90 days elapse
or a patch has been made broadly available (whichever is earlier), the bug
report will become visible to the public.
