Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : poppler (MDVSA-2013:143)

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


Synopsis :

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

Description :

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
(CVE-2013-1790).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.8
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 5.6
(CVSS2#E:F/RL:OF/RC:C)
