- More information:
Several issues were found in Ghostscript, the GPL PostScript/PDF interpreter, which allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted PostScript document.
For Debian 7
Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 9.05~dfsg-6.3+deb7u7.
We recommend that you upgrade your ghostscript packages.
