infamous41md and Chris Evans discovered several heap based buffer

also present in gpdf, the viewer with Gtk bindings, and which can lead
to a denial of service by crashing the application or possibly to the
execution of arbitrary code.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.8.2-1.2sarge5.
