Subject: poppler: Several security issues
Date: Tue, 05 Oct 2010 10:58:05 +0200
Package: poppler
Severity: grave
Tags: security
Justification: user security hole

Please apply the following patches referenced in the following
link for Squeeze, Lenny will be dealt with by the Security Team: 

Most of them are crashers (analysis was done by Tomas Hoger of
Red Hat), which are not treated as security issues, but the 
following have had CVE IDs assigned:

> e853106b58 is uninitialized pointer use flaw.  Pointer value may be
> controlled by PDF content, hence if pointed to attacker-controlled
> memory, code execution may be possible via virtual method call.  This
> should date back to very old xpdf versions.

Use CVE-2010-3702

> bf2055088a seems similar to the above one.  Pointer is to the class that
> has not virtual methods, but may be used to corrupt memory.  This should
> only affect poppler versions after b1d4efb082.

Use CVE-2010-3703

> 39d140bfc0 array indexing error / underflow.  On platforms where atoi can
> return negative result, this can allow out-of-array-bounds write.  Code
> appears in old xpdf versions too.

Use CVE-2010-3704
