CVE ID         : CVE-2018-15908 CVE-2018-15910 CVE-2018-15911
                 CVE-2018-16511 CVE-2018-16513 CVE-2018-16539
		 CVE-2018-16540 CVE-2018-16541 CVE-2018-16542
		 CVE-2018-16543 CVE-2018-16585

Tavis Ormandy discovered multiple vulnerabilites in Ghostscript, an
interpreter for the PostScript language, which could result in denial of
service, the creation of files or the execution of arbitrary code if a
malformed Postscript file is processed (despite the dSAFER sandbox being
enabled).

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
version 9.20~dfsg-3.2+deb9u4.

We recommend that you upgrade your ghostscript packages.
