Debian Security Advisory DSA 1348-1                    security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                         Moritz Muehlenhoff

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

Package        : poppler
Vulnerability  : integer overflow
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2007-3387

It was discovered that an integer overflow in the xpdf PDF viewer may lead
to the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed PDF file is opened.

poppler includes a copy of the xpdf code and required an update as well.

The oldstable distribution (sarge) doesn't include poppler.

For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.4.5-5.1etch1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your poppler packages.
