Ubuntu: poppler vulnerabilities  16 April 2009 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Will Dormann, Alin Rad Pop, Braden Thomas, and Drew Yao discovered that poppler contained multiple security issues in its JBIG2 decoder. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted PDF file, an attacker could cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user invoking the program.
 
Ubuntu: Ghostscript vulnerabilities  15 April 2009 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
It was discovered that Ghostscript contained a buffer underflow in its CCITTFax decoding filter. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted PDF file, an attacker could cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2007-6725)

Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
It was discovered that the 4xm demuxer in xine-lib did not correctly handle a large current_track value in a 4xm file, resulting in an integer overflow. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted 4xm movie file, an attacker could crash xine-lib or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-0698)
 
Ubuntu: Ghostscript vulnerabilities  23 March 2009 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
It was discovered that Ghostscript contained multiple integer overflows in its ICC color management library. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted Postscript file, an attacker could cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-0583) It was discovered that Ghostscript did not properly perform bounds checking in its ICC color management library. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted Postscript file, an attacker could cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-0584)
