Detail

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 19.10 - Ubuntu 19.04 - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Summary:

Ghostscript could be made to crash, access files, or run programs if it opened a specially crafted file.

Software Description: - ghostscript: PostScript and PDF interpreter

Details:

Paul Manfred and Lukas Schauer discovered that Ghostscript incorrectly handled certain PostScript files. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted file, a remote attacker could possibly use this issue to access arbitrary files, execute arbitrary code, or cause a denial of service.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 19.10:
ghostscript 9.27~dfsg+0-0ubuntu3.1
libgs9 9.27~dfsg+0-0ubuntu3.1

Ubuntu 19.04:
ghostscript 9.26~dfsg+0-0ubuntu7.4
libgs9 9.26~dfsg+0-0ubuntu7.4

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
ghostscript 9.26~dfsg+0-0ubuntu0.18.04.12
libgs9 9.26~dfsg+0-0ubuntu0.18.04.12

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
ghostscript 9.26~dfsg+0-0ubuntu0.16.04.12
libgs9 9.26~dfsg+0-0ubuntu0.16.04.12

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
