Description :

The splash image handler in xpdf did not check the validity of
coordinates. By tricking a user into opening a specially crafted PDF
file, a possible hacker could exploit this to trigger a buffer overflow
which could lead to arbitrary code execution with the rights of
the user.

The poppler library and kpdf also contain xpdf code, and thus are
affected by the same vulnerability.
