Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 8.04 LTS / 8.10 : poppler vulnerabilities (USN-759-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 36635

Synopsis

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

Description

Will Dormann, Alin Rad Pop, Braden Thomas, and Drew Yao discovered that poppler contained multiple security issues in its JBIG2 decoder.
If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted PDF file, an attacker could cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user invoking the program.

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.
