Xpdf and poppler contain multiple vulnerabilities in the processing of JBIG2 data

Vulnerability Note VU#196617

Original Release Date: 2009-04-16 | Last Revised: 2012-03-28

Overview

Xpdf and poppler contain multiple vulnerabilities, which may allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable system.

Description

Xpdf is an open source viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF) files. Several PDF viewing applications and libraries, such as poppler, are based on the Xpdf code. Xpdf contains multiple vulnerabilities related to the handling of PDF files that contain JBIG2 data. The vulnerabilities include, but are not limited to, a buffer overflow, an integer overflow, a null pointer dereference, and an infinite loop.

Impact

By convincing a user to open a malicious PDF file, an attacker may be able to execute code or cause a vulnerable PDF viewer to crash. The PDF could be emailed as an attachment or hosted on a website.

Solution

Apply an update

These issues are addressed in Xpdf 3.02-pl3 and poppler 0.10.6. Please check with your vendor for software updates.
