Debian DSA-1793-1 : kdegraphics - multiple vulnerabilities

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 38703

Synopsis

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

Description

kpdf, a Portable Document Format (PDF) viewer for KDE, is based on the xpdf program and thus suffers from similar flaws to those described in DSA-1790.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems :

- CVE-2009-0146 Multiple buffer overflows in the JBIG2 decoder in kpdf allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted PDF file, related to (1) JBIG2SymbolDict::setBitmap and (2) JBIG2Stream::readSymbolDictSeg.

- CVE-2009-0147 Multiple integer overflows in the JBIG2 decoder in kpdf allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted PDF file, related to (1) JBIG2Stream::readSymbolDictSeg, (2) JBIG2Stream::readSymbolDictSeg, and (3) JBIG2Stream::readGenericBitmap.

- CVE-2009-0165 Integer overflow in the JBIG2 decoder in kpdf has unspecified impact related to 'g*allocn.'

- CVE-2009-0166 The JBIG2 decoder in kpdf allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted PDF file that triggers a free of uninitialized memory.

- CVE-2009-0799 The JBIG2 decoder in kpdf allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted PDF file that triggers an out-of-bounds read.

- CVE-2009-0800 Multiple 'input validation flaws' in the JBIG2 decoder in kpdf allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted PDF file.

- CVE-2009-1179 Integer overflow in the JBIG2 decoder in kpdf allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted PDF file.

- CVE-2009-1180 The JBIG2 decoder in kpdf allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted PDF file that triggers a free of invalid data.

- CVE-2009-1181 The JBIG2 decoder in kpdf allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted PDF file that triggers a NULL pointer dereference.

- CVE-2009-1182 Multiple buffer overflows in the JBIG2 MMR decoder in kpdf allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted PDF file.

- CVE-2009-1183 The JBIG2 MMR decoder in kpdf allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop and hang) via a crafted PDF file.

The old stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in version 3.5.5-3etch3.

Solution

Upgrade the kdegraphics packages.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in version 3.5.9-3+lenny1.
