- More information:
It was discovered that Ghostscript, the GPL PostScript/PDF interpreter, is prone to a buffer overflow vulnerability in the (T)BCP encoding filters, which could result in the execution of arbitrary code if malformed document files are processed (despite the -dSAFER sandbox being enabled).
For the stable distribution (bullseye), this problem has been fixed in version 9.53.3~dfsg-7+deb11u4.
We recommend that you upgrade your ghostscript packages.
