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

Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in GPL Ghostscript. Please
review the CVE identifiers referenced below for additional information.
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 or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All GPL Ghostscript users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-text/ghostscript-gpl-9.21"
