More information:

Multiple security issues were discovered in Ghostscript, the GPL PostScript/PDF interpreter which could result in denial of service and potentially the execution of arbitrary code if malformed document files are processed.

For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in version 9.27~dfsg-2+deb10u4.

We recommend that you upgrade your ghostscript packages.
