Debian Security Advisory DSA 971-1                     security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                             Martin Schulze

- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : xpdf
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-0301
Debian Bugs    : 350783 350785

SuSE researchers discovered heap overflow errors in xpdf, the Portable
Document Format (PDF) suite, that can allow attackers to cause a
denial of service by crashing the application or possibly execute
arbitrary code.

The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.00-13.5.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.01-6.

We recommend that you upgrade your xpdf packages.


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.
