xpdf-i Update for Debian
Posted on: 01/12/2003 03:45 PM
A new security update for Debian GNU/Linux has been releasedDSA-226-1 xpdf-i -- integer overflow
iDEFENSE discovered an integer overflow in the pdftops filter from the xpdf and xpdf-i packages that can be exploited to gain the privileges of the target user. This can lead to gaining unprivileged access to the 'lp' user if the pdftops program is part of the print filter.Download
For the current stable distribution (woody) xpdf-i is only a dummy package and the problem was fixed in xpdf already.
For the old stable distribution (potato) this problem has been fixed in version 0.90-8.1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 2.01-2.
