Ubuntu 8.04 LTS / 10.04 LTS / 11.10 / 12.04 LTS / 12.10 : poppler vulnerabilities (USN-1785-1)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 65787

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

It was discovered that poppler contained multiple security issues when parsing malformed PDF documents. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted PDF file, an attacker could cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user invoking the program.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
