Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : poppler (MDKSA-2006:030)

High Nessus Plugin ID 20851


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Heap-based buffer overflow in in xpdf allows attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code via crafted splash images that produce certain values that exceed the width or height of the associated bitmap.

Poppler uses a copy of the xpdf code and as such has the same issues.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.


Update the affected packages.
