Description

Poppler is a PDF rendering library, used by applications such as evince.

Maurycy Prodeus discovered an integer overflow flaw in the processing of PDF files. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause an application linked with poppler to crash or potentially execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2007-3387)

All users of poppler should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to resolve this issue.
