Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:113: xpdf

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the xpdf package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:113 (xpdf).


Chris Evans discovered numerous vulnerabilities in the xpdf package:
Multiple integer overflow issues affecting xpdf-2.0 and xpdf-3.0. Also programs
like cups which have embedded versions of xpdf. These can result in writing an
arbitrary byte to a possible hacker controlled location which probably could lead to
arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2004-0888)
Multiple integer overflow issues affecting xpdf-3.0 only. These can result in
DoS or possibly arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2004-0889)
Chris also discovered issues with infinite loop logic error affecting xpdf-3.0
only.
The updated packages are patched to deal with these issues.
