The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in poppler :
poppler before 0.22.1 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a
denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via
vectors that trigger an invalid memory access in (1) splash/Splash.cc,
(2) poppler/Function.cc, and (3) poppler/Stream.cc (CVE-2013-1788).
poppler/Stream.cc in poppler before 0.22.1 allows context-dependent
attackers to have an unspecified impact via vectors that trigger a
read of uninitialized memory by the CCITTFaxStream::lookChar function
The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
Update the affected packages.
