Debian DLA-589-1 : mupdf security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 92794


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


A flaw was discovered in the pdf_load_mesh_params() function allowing out-of-bounds write access to memory locations. With carefully crafted input, that could trigger a heap overflow, resulting in application crash or possibly having other unspecified impact.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 0.9-2+deb7u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your mupdf packages.

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


Upgrade the affected libmupdf-dev, mupdf, and mupdf-tools packages.
