Debian Security Advisory DSA 1136-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze
August 2nd, 2006 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : gpdf
Vulnerability : wrong input sanitising
Problem type : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2005-2097
BugTraq ID : 14529
Debian Bug : 334454

"infamous41md" and Chris Evans discovered several heap based buffer
overflows in xpdf, the Portable Document Format (PDF) suite, which are
also present in gpdf, the viewer with Gtk bindings, and which can lead
to a denial of service by crashing the application or possibly to the
execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.8.2-1.2sarge5.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.10.0-4.

We recommend that you upgrade your gpdf package.
