    Package        : pdfkit.framework
    Vulnerability  : several
    Problem type   : local (remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    Derek Noonburg has fixed several potential vulnerabilities in xpdf,
    the Portable Document Format (PDF) suite, which are also present in
    pdfkit.framework, the GNUstep framework for rendering PDF content.
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain pdfkit.framework
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.8-2sarge3.
    The unstable distribution (sid) is not affected by these problems.
    We recommend that you upgrade your pdfkit.framework package.
