Description:

In ghostscript 9.54, running gs on certain pdf files causes it to exit with

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

The same issue arises when converting to text using the command

gs -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=txtwrite -sOutputFile=-

I have faced this issue only for some files, mainly digitally signed files related to financial transactions.

The problem disappears after downgrading to 9.53.3-3 or earlier version

Also pdftotext from poppler-utils converts the pdf files without any issues.
This task depends upon
