Description :

USN-236-1 fixed several vulnerabilities in xpdf. kpdf and kword
contain copies of xpdf code and are thus vulnerable to the same
issues.

For reference, this is the original advisory:

Chris Evans discovered several integer overflows in the XPDF code,
which is present in xpdf, the Poppler library, and tetex-bin. By
tricking an user into opening a specially crafted PDF file, an
attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with the
rights of the application that processes the document.

- kamera-3.4.3-0ubuntu2.2 (Ubuntu 5.10)
