Poppler is a Portable Document Format (PDF) rendering library, used by
applications such as Evince.
Two uninitialized pointer use flaws were discovered in poppler. An
attacker could create a malicious PDF file that, when opened, would
cause applications that use poppler (such as Evince) to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-3702, CVE-2010-3703)
An array index error was found in the way poppler parsed PostScript
Type 1 fonts embedded in PDF documents. An attacker could create a
malicious PDF file that, when opened, would cause applications that
use poppler (such as Evince) to crash or, potentially, execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-3704)
Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to correct these issues.
