    Package        : ghostscript
    CVE ID         : CVE-2018-16509 CVE-2018-16802
    
    Tavis Ormandy discovered multiple vulnerabilites in Ghostscript, an
    interpreter for the PostScript language, which could result in 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+deb9u5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ghostscript packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of ghostscript please refer to
    its security tracker page at:
