Our version of ghostpcl is 9.05 and dates from 2012 February 8.
The updated package updates ghostpcl from 9.05 (which dates from 2012 February 8) to be at the same version as ghostscript, ie. 9.27 with fixes for known CVEs.
Version 9.05 is affected by many security issues, for instance, see: bug 21630 comment 6, bug 21630 comment 8, bug 21630 comment 10 and bug 21630 comment 14.
Updated packages in core/updates_testing:
MGA7-64 Plasma on Lenovo B50
This laptop has a HP printer configured, but this package waas not installed, so this is a first.
No wiki, no previous update and
# urpmq --whatrequires ghostpcl
Checked the commands in the package and pcl2pdfwr looks promising, but I need a pcl file to start. I found no obvious way to get such file. Printing to a pcl file or a sample file from http://fileformats.archiveteam.org/wiki/PCL#Sample_files just gets me
$ pcl2pdfwr -h
Usage: pcl2pdfwr [options...] (input.pcl|-) [output.pdf|-]
[tester7@mach5 Documenten]$ pcl2pdfwr sample.pcl pcltest.pdf

And there I am stuck.
