Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Several issues were found in Poppler, a PDF rendering library, that could lead to denial of service or possibly other unspecified impact when processing maliciously crafted documents.

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version 0.48.0-2+deb9u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your poppler packages.

For the detailed security status of poppler please refer to its security tracker page at:
https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/poppler

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.
