Debian DLA-1074-1 : poppler security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 102823

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Several buffer and integer overflow issues were discovered in Poppler, a PDF library, that could lead to application crash or possibly other unspecified impact via maliciously crafted files.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 0.18.4-6+deb7u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your poppler packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
