Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:114: gpdf

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the gpdf package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:114 (gpdf).


Chris Evans discovered numerous vulnerabilities in the xpdf package, which also
effect software using embedded xpdf code, such as gpdf:
Multiple integer overflow issues affecting xpdf-2.0 and xpdf-3.0. Also programs
like gpdf 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.
The updated packages are patched to protect against these vulnerabilities.
