Package        : gpdf
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no

Derek Noonburg has fixed several potential vulnerabilities in xpdf,
which are also present in gpdf, the Portable Document Format (PDF)
viewer with Gtk bindings.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain gpdf packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.8.2-1.2sarge4.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your gpdf package.

- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
