    description ghostscript is vulnerable to multiple issues that can lead to denial of service when processing untrusted content. CVE-2016-10219 Application crash with division by 0 in scan conversion code triggered through crafted content. CVE-2016-10220 Application crash with a segfault in gx_device_finalize() triggered through crafted content. CVE-2017-5951 Application crash with a segfault in ref_stack_index() triggered through crafted content. For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 9.05~dfsg-6.3+deb7u5. We recommend that you upgrade your ghostscript packages. NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
