    Debian Bug     : 927820
    
    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in evince, a simple multi-page
    document viewer.
    
    CVE-2017-1000159
    
        Tobias Mueller reported that the DVI exporter in evince is
        susceptible to a command injection vulnerability via specially
        crafted filenames.
    
    CVE-2019-11459
    
        Andy Nguyen reported that the tiff_document_render() and
        tiff_document_get_thumbnail() functions in the TIFF document backend
        did not handle errors from TIFFReadRGBAImageOriented(), leading to
        disclosure of uninitialized memory when processing TIFF image files.
    
    CVE-2019-1010006
    
        A buffer overflow vulnerability in the tiff backend could lead to
        denial of service, or potentially the execution of arbitrary code if
        a specially crafted PDF file is opened.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed
    in version 3.22.1-3+deb9u2.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.30.2-3+deb10u1. The stable distribution is only affected by
    CVE-2019-11459.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your evince packages.
