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


A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was discovered in MuPDF, a lightweight PDF viewer, which may result in denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code if malformed documents are opened.


Upgrade the mupdf packages.

For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in version 1.14.0+ds1-4+deb10u2.
