Ubuntu 5.10 / 6.06 LTS / 6.10 : kdegraphics, koffice, poppler vulnerability (USN-410-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 27998

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

The poppler PDF loader library did not limit the recursion depth of the page model tree. By tricking a user into opening a specially crafter PDF file, this could be exploited to trigger an infinite loop and eventually crash an application that uses this library.

kpdf in Ubuntu 5.10, and KOffice in all Ubuntu releases contains a copy of this code and thus is affected as well.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
