Description

A bug has been discovered in the font handling code in xpdf, which is also present in kpdf, the PDF viewer for KDE. A specially crafted PDF file could cause infinite resource consumption, in terms of both CPU and disk space.

The oldstable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.
