This script is Copyright (C) 2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

CVE-2009-3608 xpdf/poppler: integer overflow in
ObjectStream::ObjectStream (oCERT-2009-016)

CVE-2009-3609 xpdf/poppler: ImageStream::ImageStream integer overflow

CVE-2009-3603 xpdf/poppler: SplashBitmap::SplashBitmap integer
overflow

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-2009-3603, CVE-2009-3608,
CVE-2009-3609)

This update also corrects a regression introduced in the previous
poppler security update, RHSA-2009:0480, that prevented poppler from
rendering certain PDF documents correctly. (BZ#528147)
