EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : poppler (EulerOS-SA-2016-1059)

High Nessus Plugin ID 99821


The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.


According to the version of the poppler packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :

- Heap-based buffer overflow in the ExponentialFunction::ExponentialFunction function in Poppler before 0.40.0 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via an invalid blend mode in the ExtGState dictionary in a crafted PDF document.(CVE-2015-8868)

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


Update the affected poppler package.
