Description

An implementation flaw was discovered in mat, the metadata anonymisation toolkit. The implementation of PDF support lacks support to anonymize the metadata in embedded images. As there is no easy fix for this flaw, it was decided that PDF support will be removed altogether from mat for the time being.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 0.3.2-1+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your mat packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
