Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : poppler (MDKSA-2006:030)

This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Heap-based buffer overflow in Splash.cc in xpdf allows attackers to
cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code via
crafted splash images that produce certain values that exceed the
width or height of the associated bitmap.

Poppler uses a copy of the xpdf code and as such has the same issues.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
