    Description:


    This update for ghostscript-library fixes the following issues:

    - Multiple security vulnerabilities have been discovered where
    ghostscript's "-dsafer" flag did not provide sufficient protection
    against unintended access to the file system. Thus, a machine that would
    process a specially crafted Postscript file would potentially leak
    sensitive information to an attacker. (CVE-2013-5653, bsc#1001951)

    - An incorrect reference count was found in .setdevice. This issue lead to
    a use-after-free scenario, which could have been exploited for
    denial-of-service or, possibly, arbitrary code execution attacks.
    (CVE-2016-7978, bsc#1001951)

    - Insufficient validation of the type of input in .initialize_dsc_parser
    used to allow remote code execution. (CVE-2016-7979, bsc#1001951)
