Debian DSA-984-1 : xpdf - several vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 22850

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9


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


Derek Noonburg has fixed several potential vulnerabilities in xpdf, the Portable Document Format (PDF) suite.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not seem to be affected.


Upgrade the xpdf packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 3.00-13.6.
