                     CVE-2020-17538
    
    Multiple security issues were discovered in Ghostscript, the GPL
    PostScript/PDF interpreter which could result in denial of service and
    potentially the execution of arbitrary code if malformed document files
    are processed.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in
    version 9.27~dfsg-2+deb10u4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ghostscript packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of ghostscript please refer to
    its security tracker page at:
