USN-3831-2: Ghostscript regression

6 December 2018

USN-3831-1 introduced a regression in Ghostscript.




USN-3831-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Ghostscript. Ghostscript 9.26
introduced a regression when used with certain options. This update fixes
the problem.

Original advisory 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 18.10
Ubuntu 18.04
Ubuntu 16.04
Ubuntu 14.04

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
