Package        : xpdf
Vulnerability  : integer overflows
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0888
Debian Bug     : 278298

Chris Evans discovered several integer overflows in xpdf, a viewer for
PDF files, which can be exploited remotely by a specially crafted PDF
document and lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.00-3.2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.00-9.

We recommend that you upgrade your xpdf package.
