Debian Bug     : 342281

"infamous41md" and Chris Evans discovered several heap based buffer
overflows in xpdf, the Portable Document Format (PDF) suite, that can
lead to a denial of service by crashing the application or possibly to
the execution of arbitrary code.

For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.00-3.8.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.00-13.4.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.01-4.

We recommend that you upgrade your xpdf package.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
