01 October 2018

Several security issues were fixed in Ghostscript.

Releases

Packages

Details

It was discovered that Ghostscript contained multiple security issues. If a
user or automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted
file, a remote attacker could possibly use these issues to access arbitrary
files, execute arbitrary code, or cause a denial of service.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 18.04
Ubuntu 16.04
Ubuntu 14.04

This update uses a new upstream release, which includes additional bug
fixes. In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary
changes.
