Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in Ghostscript.

Software Description:
– ghostscript: PostScript and PDF interpreter

Details:

It was discovered that Ghostscript contained multiple security issues. If=
a
user or automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted=

file, a remote attacker could possibly use these issues to access arbitra=
ry
files, execute arbitrary code, or cause a denial of service.
