Synopsis :

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

Alin Rad Pop (Secunia) discovered a number of vulnerabilities in xpdf,
a set of tools for display and conversion of Portable Document Format
(PDF) files. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project

Inadequate DCT stream validation allows an attacker to
corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code by
supplying a maliciously crafted PDF file.

- CVE-2007-5392
An integer overflow vulnerability in DCT stream handling
could allow an attacker to overflow a heap buffer,
enabling the execution of arbitrary code.

- CVE-2007-5393
A buffer overflow vulnerability in xpdf's CCITT image
compression handlers allows overflow on the heap,
allowing an attacker to execute arbitrary code by
supplying a maliciously crafted CCITTFaxDecode filter.
