    Package        : gs
    Problem type   : symlink attack
    Debian-specific: no
    
    ghostscript uses temporary files to do some of its work. Unfortunately
    the method used to create those files wasn't secure: mktemp was used
    to create a name for a temporary file, but the file was not opened
    safely. A second problem is that during build the LD_RUN_PATH environment
    variable was set to the empty string, which causes the dynamic linker
    to look in the current directory for shared libraries.
    
    Bot of these problems have been fixed in version 5.10-10.1.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
