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

Package : poppler
Vulnerability : programming error
Problem type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE 2008-1693
Debian Bug : 476842

It was discovered that poppler, a PDF rendering library, did not
properly handle embedded fonts in PDF files, allowing attackers to
execute arbitrary code via a crafted font object.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
0.4.5-5.1etch3.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.8.0-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your poppler package.


Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

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

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

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