    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-6116
    
    Tavis Ormandy discovered a vulnerability in Ghostscript, the GPL
    PostScript/PDF interpreter, which may result in denial of service or the
    execution of arbitrary code if a malformed Postscript file is processed
    (despite the -dSAFER sandbox being enabled).
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 9.26a~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:
