Debian Security Advisory DSA 979-1                                        Martin Schulze

Package        : pdfkit.framework
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no

Derek Noonburg has fixed several potential vulnerabilities in xpdf,
the Portable Document Format (PDF) suite, which are also present in
pdfkit.framework, the GNUstep framework for rendering PDF content.

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

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.8-2sarge3.

The unstable distribution (sid) is not affected by these problems.

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.
