Debian DSA-979-1 : pdfkit.framework - several vulnerabilities

high Nessus Plugin ID 22845
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 Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Derek Noonburg has fixed several potential vulnerabilities in xpdf, the Portable Document Format (PDF) suite, which are also present in pdfkit.framework, the GNUstep framework for rendering PDF content.

Solution

Upgrade the pdfkit.framework package.

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

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 0.8-2sarge3.
