Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2007-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
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.
Update the affected libkpathsea-dev, libkpathsea3 and / or tetex-bin
Risk factor :
Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.8
