Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:032 (xpdf).



Heap-based buffer overflow in Splash.cc in xpdf permits attackers to cause a
denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code via crafted splash images
that produce certain values that exceed the width or height of the associated
bitmap. The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
