    3. Description:
    
    The Ghostscript suite contains utilities for rendering PostScript and PDF
    documents. Ghostscript translates PostScript code to common bitmap formats
    so that the code can be displayed or printed.
    
    Security Fix(es):
    
    * ghostscript: use-after-free in copydevice handling (699661)
    (CVE-2018-16540)
    
    * ghostscript: access bypass in psi/zdevice2.c (700153) (CVE-2018-19475)
    
    * ghostscript: access bypass in psi/zicc.c (700169) (CVE-2018-19476)
    
    * ghostscript: access bypass in psi/zfjbig2.c (700168) (CVE-2018-19477)
    
    * ghostscript: subroutines within pseudo-operators must themselves be
    pseudo-operators (700317) (CVE-2019-6116)
    
    For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS
    score, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in
    the References section.
    
    Red Hat would like to thank Tavis Ormandy (Google Project Zero) for
    reporting CVE-2019-6116.
    
    Bug Fix(es):
    
    * Previously, ghostscript-9.07-31.el7_6.1 introduced a regression during
    the standard input reading, causing a "/invalidfileaccess in --run--"
    error. With this update, the regression has been fixed and the described
    error no longer occurs. (BZ#1665919)
