Several security issues have been discovered in Ghostscript, the GPL
PostScript/PDF interpreter, which might lead to the execution of
arbitrary code if a user processes a malformed PDF or Postscript file.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 8.62.dfsg.1-3.2lenny4.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 8.71~dfsg-4.

We recommend that you upgrade your ghostscript packages.
