Description Thomas Deutschmann gentoo-dev 2017-01-25 15:29:43 UTC
app-text/ghostscript-gpl is currently bundling media-libs/openjpeg (ghostscript-gpl-9.19 includes openjpeg-2.1.0).

The package should be affected by most vulnerabilities mentioned in
Comment 1 Tiziano Müller (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2017-01-25 17:59:56 UTC
Unbundling openjpeg seems possible (upstream uses 2.1.0), but `base/lib.mak` needs to be patched to make it build with openjpeg 2.1.1+.

See for a preliminary version bump to 9.20
Comment 2 Thomas Deutschmann gentoo-dev 2017-01-30 00:37:33 UTC
OpenJPEG was unbundled in as part of bug 596576.
Comment 3 Andreas K. Hüttel archtester gentoo-dev 2017-02-21 12:46:17 UTC
All vulnerable versions have been removed.
Comment 4 Thomas Deutschmann gentoo-dev 2017-02-21 18:23:22 UTC
