openSUSE Security Update : mupdf (openSUSE-2018-149)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 106704


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


This update for mupdf fixes several issues.

These security issues were fixed :

- CVE-2018-6187: Prevent heap-based buffer overflow in the do_pdf_save_document function. Remote attackers could leverage the vulnerability to cause a denial of service via a crafted pdf file (bsc#1077407).

- CVE-2018-6544: pdf_load_obj_stm could have referenced the object stream recursively and therefore run out of error stack, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a crafted PDF document (bsc#1079100).

- CVE-2018-6192: The pdf_read_new_xref function allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (segmentation violation and application crash) via a crafted pdf file (bsc#1077755).


Update the affected mupdf packages.
