A security vulnerability was found in Ghostscript, the GPL PostScript/PDF interpreter. It was discovered that some privileged Postscript operators remained accessible from various places. For instance a specially crafted PostScript file could use this flaw in order to have access to the file system outside of the constrains imposed by -dSAFER.

For Debian 8 jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 9.26a~dfsg-0+deb8u9.

We recommend that you upgrade your ghostscript packages.
