    Cedric Buissart discovered two vulnerabilities in Ghostscript, the GPL
    PostScript/PDF interpreter, which could result in bypass of file system
    restrictions of the dSAFER sandbox.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version
    9.26a~dfsg-0+deb8u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ghostscript packages.
