Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

"infamous41md" and Chris Evans discovered several heap based buffer
overflows in xpdf, the Portable Document Format (PDF) suite, that can

the execution of arbitrary code.
For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.00-3.8.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.00-13.4.
