Building Documents in Debian 10

08 Apr 2021 13:39 #205322 by BigJohnT
Building documents in Debian 10 has been blocked by ImageMagick due to a security vulnerability that has been addressed in Ghostscript 9.24. However if you check the version of gs in Debian 10 it's past 9.2.4.
john@d10cave:~$ gs --version

Seems that ImageMagick failed to correct the blocking policy. To fix that open up /etc/ImageMagick-6/policy.xml as sudo
sudo pluma /etc/ImageMagick-6/policy.xml

Either comment out the offending lines or delete them. I chose to comment them out.
  <!-- disable ghostscript format types -->
  <!-- <policy domain="coder" rights="none" pattern="PS" /> -->
  <!-- <policy domain="coder" rights="none" pattern="PS2" /> -->
  <!-- <policy domain="coder" rights="none" pattern="PS3" /> -->
  <!-- <policy domain="coder" rights="none" pattern="EPS" /> -->
  <!-- <policy domain="coder" rights="none" pattern="PDF" /> -->
  <!-- <policy domain="coder" rights="none" pattern="XPS" /> -->

The documents will now build as usual.
