Synopsis :

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

Alin Rad Pop (Secunia) discovered a number of vulnerabilities in xpdf,

Inadequate DCT stream validation allows an attacker to
corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code by
supplying a maliciously crafted PDF file.

- CVE-2007-5392
An integer overflow vulnerability in DCT stream handling
could allow an attacker to overflow a heap buffer,
enabling the execution of arbitrary code.

- CVE-2007-5393
A buffer overflow vulnerability in xpdf's CCITT image
compression handlers allows overflow on the heap,
allowing an attacker to execute arbitrary code by
supplying a maliciously crafted CCITTFaxDecode filter.
