    Package        : gpdf
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
    Problem type   : local (remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-0301
    
    SuSE researchers discovered heap overflow errors in xpdf, the Portable
    Document Format (PDF) suite, which is also present in gpdf, the GNOME
    version of the Portable Document Format viewer, and which can allow
    attackers to cause a denial of service by crashing the application or
    possibly execute arbitrary code.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain gpdf packages.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.8.2-1.2sarge3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your gpdf package.
