Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in GPL Ghostscript, the worst
of which could result in the execution of arbitrary code.

Background
==========

Ghostscript is an interpreter for the PostScript language and for PDF.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  app-text/ghostscript-gpl
                                   < 9.26                     >= 9.26 

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in GPL Ghostscript.
Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for additional
information.

Impact
======

A context-dependent attacker could entice a user to open a specially
crafted PostScript file or PDF document using GPL Ghostscript possibly
resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the
process, a Denial of Service condition, or other unspecified impacts,

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All GPL Ghostscript users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-text/ghostscript-gpl-9.26"
