Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : poppler (MDVSA-2013:143)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 66155


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in poppler :

poppler before 0.22.1 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors that trigger an invalid memory access in (1) splash/, (2) poppler/, and (3) poppler/ (CVE-2013-1788).

poppler/ in poppler before 0.22.1 allows context-dependent attackers to have an unspecified impact via vectors that trigger a read of uninitialized memory by the CCITTFaxStream::lookChar function (CVE-2013-1790).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.


Update the affected packages.
