This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

This update of libpoppler4 fixes various security issues.

- Fix multiple integer overflows in 'pdftops' filter that
could be used by attackers to execute code.
(CVE-2009-0791)

- Integer overflow in the
create_surface_from_thumbnail_data function in
glib/poppler-page.cc in Poppler 0.x allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (memory
corruption) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a
crafted PDF document that triggers a heap-based buffer
overflow. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from
third-party information. (CVE-2009-3607)

- Integer overflow in the ObjectStream::ObjectStream
function in XRef.cc in Xpdf 3.x before 3.02pl4 and
Poppler before 0.12.1, as used in GPdf, kdegraphics
KPDF, CUPS pdftops, and teTeX, might allow remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted PDF
document that triggers a heap-based buffer overflow.
(CVE-2009-3608)

- Buffer overflow in the ABWOutputDev::endWord function in
poppler/ABWOutputDev.cc in Poppler (aka libpoppler)
0.10.6, 0.12.0, and possibly other versions, as used by
the Abiword pdftoabw utility, allows user-assisted
remote attackers to cause a denial of service and
possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted PDF file.
(CVE-2009-3938)

- A indexing error in FoFiType1::parse() was fixed that
could be used by attackers to corrupt memory and
potentially execute code. (CVE-2009-4035)
