Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200410-20
(Xpdf, CUPS: Multiple integer overflows)

Chris Evans discovered multiple integer overflow issues in Xpdf.

Impact :

An attacker could entice an user to open a specially crafted PDF file,
potentially resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the
user running Xpdf. By enticing an user to directly print the PDF file to a
CUPS printer, an attacker could also crash the CUPS spooler or execute
arbitrary code with the rights of the CUPS spooler, which is usually the
'lp' user.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
