Ubuntu 4.10 / 5.04 / 5.10 : kdegraphics, koffice, xpdf, cupsys, poppler, tetex-bin vulnerabilities (USN-270-1)

high Nessus Plugin ID 21234
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

Derek Noonburg discovered several integer overflows in the XPDF code, which is present in xpdf, the Poppler library, and tetex-bin. By tricking an user into opening a specially crafted PDF file, an attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the application that processes the document.

The CUPS printing system also uses XPDF code to convert PDF files to PostScript. By attempting to print such a crafted PDF file, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the printer server (user 'cupsys').

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
