High Nessus Plugin ID 60680
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionCVE-2009-3608 xpdf/poppler: integer overflow in ObjectStream::ObjectStream (oCERT-2009-016)
CVE-2009-3609 xpdf/poppler: ImageStream::ImageStream integer overflow
CVE-2009-3603 xpdf/poppler: SplashBitmap::SplashBitmap integer overflow
Multiple integer overflow flaws were found in poppler. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause applications that use poppler (such as Evince) to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2009-3603, CVE-2009-3608, CVE-2009-3609)
This update also corrects a regression introduced in the previous poppler security update, RHSA-2009:0480, that prevented poppler from rendering certain PDF documents correctly. (BZ#528147)
SolutionUpdate the affected poppler, poppler-devel and / or poppler-utils packages.
