Synopsis :

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

Description :

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2009:1504 :

Updated poppler packages that fix multiple security issues and a bug
are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.

Poppler is a Portable Document Format (PDF) rendering library, used by
applications such as Evince.

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,

Red Hat would like to thank Chris Rohlf for reporting the
CVE-2009-3608 issue.

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)

Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to resolve these issues.
