Debian DSA-4006-1 : mupdf - security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 104134


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in MuPDF, a PDF file viewer, which may result in denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code.

- CVE-2017-14685, CVE-2017-14686, and CVE-2017-14687 WangLin discovered that a crafted .xps file can crash MuPDF and potentially execute arbitrary code in several ways, since the application makes unchecked assumptions on the entry format.

- CVE-2017-15587 Terry Chia and Jeremy Heng discovered an integer overflow that can cause arbitrary code execution via a crafted .pdf file.


Upgrade the mupdf packages.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 1.9a+ds1-4+deb9u1.
