    Manfred Paul and Lukas Schauer reported that the .charkeys procedure in
    Ghostscript, the GPL PostScript/PDF interpreter, does not properly
    restrict privileged calls, which could result in bypass of file system
    restrictions of the dSAFER sandbox.
    
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    9.26a~dfsg-0+deb8u6.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your ghostscript packages.
