    Package        : libextractor
    Vulnerability  : several
    Problem type   : local (remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    Derek Noonburg has fixed several potential vulnerabilities in xpdf,
    which are also present in libextractor, a library to extract arbitrary
    meta-data from files.
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain libextractor packages.
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.4.2-2sarge3.
    For the unstable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.5.10-1.
    We recommend that you upgrade your libextractor package.
