Package        : libextractor
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.

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

For the oldstable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.4.2-2sarge6.

The stable distribution (etch) isn't affected by this problem.

The unstable distribution (sid) isn't affected by this problem.

We recommend that you upgrade your libextractor packages.
