    A vulnerability was discovered 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 Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    9.26a~dfsg-0+deb8u3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ghostscript packages.
