Debian DSA-932-1 : kdegraphics - buffer overflows

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 22798

Synopsis

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

Description

'infamous41md' and Chris Evans discovered several heap based buffer overflows in xpdf, the Portable Document Format (PDF) suite, that can lead to a denial of service by crashing the application or possibly to the execution of arbitrary code. The same code is present in kpdf which is part of the kdegraphics package.

Solution

Upgrade the kpdf package.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain kpdf packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 3.3.2-2sarge3.
