Ubuntu 5.10 / 6.06 LTS / 6.10 : kdegraphics, koffice, poppler vulnerability (USN-410-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2007-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description :

The poppler PDF loader library did not limit the recursion depth of
the page model tree. By tricking a user into opening a specially
crafter PDF file, this could be exploited to trigger an infinite loop
and eventually crash an application that uses this library.

kpdf in Ubuntu 5.10, and KOffice in all Ubuntu releases contains a
copy of this code and thus is affected as well.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.8

Family: Ubuntu Local Security Checks

Nessus Plugin ID: 27998 ()
