Package : xpdf
Vulnerability : integer overflows
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2004-0888
Debian Bug : 278298

Chris Evans discovered several integer overflows in xpdf, a viewer for PDF files, which can be exploited remotely by a specially crafted PDF document and lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 1.00-3.2.

We recommend that you upgrade your xpdf package.
