    Package        : pdfkit.framework
    Vulnerability  : integer overflow
    Problem type   : local (remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2007-3387
    
    It was discovered that an integer overflow in the xpdf PDF viewer may lead
    to the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed PDF file is opened.
    
    pdfkit.framework includes a copy of the xpdf code and required an update
    as well.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.8-2sarge4.
    
    The package from the stable distribution (etch) links dynamically
    against libpoppler and doesn't require a separate update.
    
    The package from the unstable distribution (sid) links dynamically
    against libpoppler and doesn't require a separate update.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your pdfkit.framework packages.
