xpdf Update for Debian
Posted on: 01/07/2003 01:18 AM

A new security update for Debian GNU/Linux has been released

DSA-222-1 xpdf -- integer overflow
iDEFENSE discovered an integer overflow in the pdftops filter from the xpdf package that can be exploited to gain the privileges of the target user. This can lead to gaining privileged access to the 'lp' user if the pdftops program is part of the print filter.

For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 1.00-3.1.

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.
