Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Multiple integer overflow flaws were found in poppler. An attacker
could create a malicious PDF file that would cause applications that
use poppler (such as Evince) to crash or, potentially, execute
arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2009-0147, CVE-2009-1179,
CVE-2009-1187, CVE-2009-1188)

Multiple buffer overflow flaws were found in poppler's JBIG2 decoder.
An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause
applications that use poppler (such as Evince) to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2009-0146,
CVE-2009-1182)

Multiple flaws were found in poppler's JBIG2 decoder that could lead
to the freeing of arbitrary memory. An attacker could create a
malicious PDF file that would cause applications that use poppler
(such as Evince) to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code when
opened. (CVE-2009-0166, CVE-2009-1180)

Multiple input validation flaws were found in poppler's JBIG2 decoder.
An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause
applications that use poppler (such as Evince) to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2009-0800)

Multiple denial of service flaws were found in poppler's JBIG2
decoder. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would
cause applications that use poppler (such as Evince) to crash when
opened. (CVE-2009-0799, CVE-2009-1181, CVE-2009-1183)
