Debian DSA-1480-1 : poppler - several vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 30188


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


Alin Rad Pop discovered several buffer overflows in the Poppler PDF library, which could allow the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed PDF file is opened.


Upgrade the poppler packages.

The old stable distribution (sarge) doesn't contain poppler.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in version 0.4.5-5.1etch2.
