MDKSA-2007:020: 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-2007:020 (poppler).
The Adobe PDF specification 1.3, as implemented by xpdf 3.0.1 patch 2,
kpdf in KDE before 3.5.5, and other products, allows remote attackers
to have an unknown impact, possibly including denial of service
(infinite loop), arbitrary code execution, or memory corruption, via a
PDF file with a (1) crafted catalog dictionary or (2) a crafted Pages
attribute that references an invalid page tree node.
The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
