Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2004-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
A potential buffer overflow has been found in the xpdf viewer. An
insufficient input validation could be exploited by an attacker
providing a specially crafted PDF file which, when processed by xpdf,
could result in abnormal program termination or the execution of
attacker supplied program code with the user's privileges.
The tetex-bin package contains the affected xpdf code to generate PDF
output and process included PDF files, thus is vulnerable as well.
Update the affected packages.
