MDKSA-2006:030: poppler Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the poppler package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:030 (poppler).
Heap-based buffer overflow in Splash.cc in xpdf allows 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. Poppler uses a copy of the xpdf code and as such has the same issues.
The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
