Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Xpdf, which can be
exploited by malicious people to potentially compromise a user's
system.

1) Multiple integer overflows in 'SplashBitmap::SplashBitmap()' can be
exploited to cause heap-based buffer overflows.

2) An integer overflow error in 'ObjectStream::ObjectStream()' can be
exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow.

3) Multiple integer overflows in 'Splash::drawImage()' can be
exploited to cause heap-based buffer overflows.
