[DSA936] DSA-936-1 libextractor Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
DSA-936-1 libextractor

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

"infamous41md" and Chris Evans discovered several heap based buffer
overflows in xpdf, the Portable Document Format (PDF) suite, which is
also present in libextractor, a library to extract arbitrary meta-data
from files, and which can lead to a denial of service by crashing the
application or possibly to the execution of arbitrary code.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain libextractor
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.4.2-2sarge2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your libextractor packages.
