Description

USN-496-1 fixed a vulnerability in koffice. This update provides the corresponding updates for poppler, the library used for PDF handling in Gnome.

Derek Noonburg discovered an integer overflow in the Xpdf function StreamPredictor::StreamPredictor(). By importing a specially crafted PDF file into KWord, this could be exploited to run arbitrary code with the user's privileges.

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