Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: xpdf
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2004:113
Date: October 21st, 2004

Affected versions: 10.0, Corporate Server 2.1
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Chris Evans discovered numerous vulnerabilities in the xpdf package:

Multiple integer overflow issues affecting xpdf-2.0 and xpdf-3.0. Also programs like cups which have embedded versions of xpdf. These can result in writing an arbitrary byte to an attacker controlled location which probably could lead to arbitrary code execution. (CAN-2004-0888)

Multiple integer overflow issues affecting xpdf-3.0 only. These can result in DoS or possibly arbitrary code execution. (CAN-2004-0889)

Chris also discovered issues with infinite loop logic error affecting xpdf-3.0 only.

The updated packages are patched to deal with these issues.
