Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : xpdf (MDVSA-2009:287-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 42215

Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in xpdf :

Integer overflow in the SplashBitmap::SplashBitmap function in Xpdf 3.x before 3.02pl4 and Poppler before 0.12.1 might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted PDF document that triggers a heap-based buffer overflow. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third-party information. NOTE: this issue reportedly exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2009-1188 (CVE-2009-3603).

The Splash::drawImage function in Splash.cc in Xpdf 2.x and 3.x before 3.02pl4, and Poppler 0.x, as used in GPdf and kdegraphics KPDF, does not properly allocate memory, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted PDF document that triggers a NULL pointer dereference or a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2009-3604).

Integer overflow in the PSOutputDev::doImageL1Sep function in Xpdf before 3.02pl4, and Poppler 0.x, as used in kdegraphics KPDF, might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted PDF document that triggers a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2009-3606).

Integer overflow in the ObjectStream::ObjectStream function in XRef.cc in Xpdf 3.x before 3.02pl4 and Poppler before 0.12.1, as used in GPdf, kdegraphics KPDF, CUPS pdftops, and teTeX, might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted PDF document that triggers a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2009-3608).

Integer overflow in the ImageStream::ImageStream function in Stream.cc in Xpdf before 3.02pl4 and Poppler before 0.12.1, as used in GPdf, kdegraphics KPDF, and CUPS pdftops, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted PDF document that triggers a NULL pointer dereference or buffer over-read (CVE-2009-3609).

This update fixes these vulnerabilities.

Update :
