Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : pdftohtml (MDKSA-2007:019)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 24634
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThe Adobe PDF specification 1.3, as implemented by xpdf 3.0.1 patch 2, kpdf in KDE before 3.5.5, and other products, allows remote attackers to have an unknown impact, possibly including denial of service (infinite loop), arbitrary code execution, or memory corruption, via a PDF file with a (1) crafted catalog dictionary or (2) a crafted Pages attribute that references an invalid page tree node.
The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
SolutionUpdate the affected pdftohtml package.
