Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA961] DSA-961-1 pdfkit.framework

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-961-1 pdfkit.framework

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

"infamous41md" and Chris Evans discovered several heap based buffer
overflows in xpdf which are also present in pdfkit.framework, the
GNUstep framework for rendering PDF content, and which can lead to a
denial of service by crashing the application or possibly to the
execution of arbitrary code.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain pdfkit.framework
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.8-2sarge1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your pdfkit.framework package.
