    Package        : pdfkit.framework
    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
    pdfkit.framework, the GNUstep framework for rendering PDF content, 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 pdfkit.framework
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.8-2sarge2.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.8-4 by switching to poppler.
    We recommend that you upgrade your pdfkit.framework package.
