SuSE 10 Security Update : poppler (ZYPP Patch Number 6743)

high Nessus Plugin ID 49916



The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.


This update of poppler fixes two security issues :

- Integer overflow in the ObjectStream::ObjectStream function in 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.

- A indexing error in FoFiType1::parse() was fixed that could be used by attackers to corrupt memory and potentially execute code. (CVE-2009-4035)


Apply ZYPP patch number 6743.
