Description

The Ghostscript suite contains utilities for rendering PostScript and PDF documents. Ghostscript translates PostScript code to common bitmap formats so that the code can be displayed or printed.

The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version: ghostscript (9.25). (BZ#1636115)

Security Fix(es):

  • ghostscript: status command permitted with -dSAFER in psi/zfile.c allowing attackers to identify the size and existence of files (CVE-2018-11645)
