Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2009-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
USN-850-1 fixed vulnerabilities in poppler. This update provides the
corresponding updates for Ubuntu 9.10.
It was discovered that poppler contained multiple security issues when
parsing malformed PDF documents. If a user or automated system were
tricked into opening a crafted PDF file, an attacker could cause a
denial of service or execute arbitrary code with privileges of the
user invoking the program.
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 packages.
