Package        : pdfkit.framework
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.

pdfkit.framework 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 0.8-2sarge4.

The package from the stable distribution (etch) links dynamically
against libpoppler and doesn't require a separate update.

The package from the unstable distribution (sid) links dynamically
against libpoppler and doesn't require a separate update.

We recommend that you upgrade your pdfkit.framework packages.


Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

sources.list as given at the end of this advisory:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
