Debian Security Advisory DSA 972-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze
February 15th, 2006 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : pdfkit.framework
Vulnerability : buffer overflows
Problem type : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2006-0301

SuSE researchers discovered heap overflow errors in xpdf, the Portable
Document Format (PDF) suite, which is also present in
pdfkit.framework, the GNUstep framework for rendering PDF content, and
which can allow attackers to cause a denial of service by crashing the
application or possibly execute arbitrary code.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain pdfkit.framework
packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.8-2sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.8-4 by switching to poppler.

We recommend that you upgrade your pdfkit.framework package.


Upgrade Instructions
