medium Nessus Plugin ID 49965

Language:

New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

Joel Voss of Leviathan Security Group discovered two vulnerabilities in the Poppler PDF rendering library, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed PDF file is opened.

Solution

Upgrade the poppler packages.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in version 0.8.7-4.
