    Tavis Ormandy discovered multiple vulnerabilites in Ghostscript, an
    interpreter for the PostScript language, which could result in denial of
    service, the creation of files or the execution of arbitrary code if a
    malformed Postscript file is processed (despite the dSAFER sandbox being
    enabled).
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 9.20~dfsg-3.2+deb9u4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ghostscript packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of ghostscript please refer to
    its security tracker page at:
