    Package        : pdfkit.framework
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE IDs        : CVE-2005-3191 CVE-2005-3192 CVE-2005-3193 CVE-2005-3624
                     CVE-2005-3625 CVE-2005-3626 CVE-2005-3627 CVE-2005-3628
    "infamous41md" and Chris Evans discovered several heap based buffer
    overflows in xpdf which are also present in pdfkit.framework, the
    GNUstep framework for rendering PDF content, and which can lead to a
    denial of service by crashing the application or possibly to the
    execution of arbitrary code.
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain pdfkit.framework
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.8-2sarge1.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.
    We recommend that you upgrade your pdfkit.framework package.
