Fedora 9 : poppler-0.8.1-2.fc9 (2008-7012)

High Nessus Plugin ID 34172


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Security fix: Add upstream patch for CVE-2008-2950 / oCERT-2008-007 - use of an uninitialized pointer to call free() in Page::~Page (#454277) http://www.ocert.org/advisories/ocert-2008-007.html Bug fixes: Fix crash when reading QuadPoints (#448516) Use static FT_Library in CairoOutputDev, as dynamic may trigger use-after-free and crash e.g. evince (#456867)

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


Update the affected poppler package.
