Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2007-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
USN-410-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the poppler PDF loader library.
This update provides the corresponding updates for a copy of this code
in tetex-bin in Ubuntu 5.10. Versions of tetex-bin after Ubuntu 5.10
use poppler directly and do not need a separate update.
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.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
Update the affected libkpathsea-dev, libkpathsea3 and / or tetex-bin
