Description

Poppler is a Portable Document Format (PDF) rendering library, used by applications such as Evince.

Security Fix(es):

  • A heap-buffer overflow was found in the poppler library. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause applications that use poppler (such as Evince) to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2015-8868)
