Description

It was discovered that various procedures in Ghostscript, the GPL PostScript/PDF interpreter, do not properly restrict privileged calls, which could result in bypass of file system restrictions of the dSAFER sandbox.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 9.26a~dfsg-0+deb8u5.

We recommend that you upgrade your ghostscript packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
