Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

Chris Evans discovered numerous vulnerabilities in the xpdf package :

Multiple integer overflow issues affecting xpdf-2.0 and xpdf-3.0. Also
programs like cups which have embedded versions of xpdf. These can
result in writing an arbitrary byte to an attacker controlled location
which probably could lead to arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2004-0888)

Multiple integer overflow issues affecting xpdf-3.0 only. These can
result in DoS or possibly arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2004-0889)

Chris also discovered issues with infinite loop logic error affecting
xpdf-3.0 only.

The updated packages are patched to deal with these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected xpdf package.

Risk factor :

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
