Advisory ID: MDKSA-2005:016
Date: January 25th, 2005

Affected versions: 10.0, 10.1, Corporate Server 3.0
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A buffer overflow vulnerability was discovered in the xpdf PDF code, which could allow for arbitrary code execution as the user viewing a PDF file. The vulnerability exists due to insufficient bounds checking while processing a PDF file that provides malicious values in the /Encrypt /Length tag. Gpdf uses xpdf code and is susceptible to the same vulnerability.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent these problems.
