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.
