Ghostscript Failed Restore Command Execution

This Metasploit module exploits a -dSAFER bypass in Ghostscript to execute arbitrary commands by handling a failed restore (grestore) in PostScript to disable LockSafetyParams and avoid invalidaccess. This vulnerability is reachable via libraries such as ImageMagick, and this module provides the latest vector for Ghostscript.
