Package        : xpdf
Vulnerability  : multiple
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-1693

Kees Cook discovered a vulnerability in xpdf, set set of tools for
display and conversion of Portable Document Format (PDF) files.  The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
problem:

CVE-2008-1693

    Xpdf's handling of embedded fonts lacks sufficient validation
    and type checking.  If a maliciously-crafted PDF file is opened, 
    the vulnerability may allow the execution of arbitrary code with
    the privileges of the user running xpdf.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 3.01-9.1+etch3.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems were fixed in
version 3.02-1.2.

We recommend that you upgrade your xpdf package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
