Debian Security Advisory DSA 1352-1 security@debian.org

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

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.
