    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Ghostscript, the GPL
    PostScript/PDF interpreter, which may result in denial of service,
    disclosure of existence and size of arbitrary files, or the execution of
    arbitrary code if a malformed Postscript file is processed (despite the
    dSAFER sandbox being enabled).
    
    This update rebases ghostscript for stretch to the upstream version 9.25
    which includes additional non-security related changes.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 9.25~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
