Synopsis

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

Description

Derek Noonburg has fixed several potential vulnerabilities in xpdf, which are also present in libextractor, a library to extract arbitrary meta-data from files.

Solution

Upgrade the libextractor package.

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

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 0.4.2-2sarge3.
