Insight

Insight

An iDEFENSE security researcher discovered a buffer overflow in xpdf, the Portable Document Format (PDF) suite. Similar code is present in the PDF processing part of CUPS. A maliciously crafted PDF file could exploit this problem, leading to the execution of arbitrary code. For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 1.1.14-5woody11. For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 1.1.22-2. We recommend that you upgrade your cupsys packages.
