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.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you

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
apt-get upgrade

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
