Insight

Insight

Several security issues have been discovered in Ghostscript, the GPL PostScript/PDF interpreter, which might lead to the execution of arbitrary code if a user processes a malformed PDF or Postscript file. For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in version 8.62.dfsg.1-3.2lenny4. For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 8.71~dfsg-4. We recommend that you upgrade your ghostscript packages.
