Mandriva: Updated poppler packages fix vulnerability
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake Kees Cook of Ubuntu security found a flaw in how poppler prior to version 0.6 displayed malformed fonts embedded in PDF files. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause applications using poppler to crash, or possibly execute arbitrary code when opened (CVE-2008-1693). The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
