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
lead to a denial of service by crashing the application or possibly to
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.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in

We recommend that you upgrade your xpdf package.
