Tavis Ormandy discovered a vulnerability in Ghostscript, the GPL PostScript/PDF interpreter, which may result in denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed Postscript file is processed (despite the -dSAFER sandbox being enabled).

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 9.26a~dfsg-0+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your ghostscript packages.

For the detailed security status of ghostscript please refer to its security tracker page at: https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/ghostscript
