Debian DSA-2135-1 : xpdf - several vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 51397

Synopsis

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

Description

Joel Voss of Leviathan Security Group discovered two vulnerabilities in xpdf rendering engine, 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 3.02-1.4+lenny3.

For the upcoming stable distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution (sid), these problems don't apply, since xpdf has been patched to use the Poppler PDF library.
