Debian Security Advisory DSA 961-1                                        Martin Schulze
February 1st, 2006

Package        : pdfkit.framework
Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs        : CVE-2005-3191 CVE-2005-3192 CVE-2005-3193 CVE-2005-3624
                 CVE-2005-3625 CVE-2005-3626 CVE-2005-3627 CVE-2005-3628

"infamous41md" and Chris Evans discovered several heap based buffer
overflows in xpdf which are also present in pdfkit.framework, the
GNUstep framework for rendering PDF content, and which can lead to a
denial of service by crashing the application or possibly to the
execution of arbitrary code.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain pdfkit.framework

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.8-2sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your pdfkit.framework 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.
