    Debian Bug     : 877379 879055
    
    Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in MuPDF, a PDF file viewer, which
    may result in denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2017-14685, CVE-2017-14686, and CVE-2017-14687
    
         WangLin discovered that a crafted .xps file can crash MuPDF and
         potentially execute arbitrary code in several ways, since the
         application makes unchecked assumptions on the entry format.
    
    CVE-2017-15587
    
        Terry Chia and Jeremy Heng discovered an integer overflow that can
        cause arbitrary code execution via a crafted .pdf file.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.9a+ds1-4+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your mupdf packages.
