Description

Secunia Research reports :

Secunia Research has discovered some vulnerabilities in Xpdf, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

- An array indexing error within the 'DCTStream::readProgressiveDataUnit()' method in xpdf/Stream.cc can be exploited to corrupt memory via a specially crafted PDF file.

- An integer overflow error within the 'DCTStream::reset()' method in xpdf/Stream.cc can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted PDF file.

- A boundary error within the 'CCITTFaxStream::lookChar()' method in xpdf/Stream.cc can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow by tricking a user into opening a PDF file containing a specially crafted 'CCITTFaxDecode' filter.

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.

Solution
