Package        : pdftohtml
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no

Derek Noonburg has fixed several potential vulnerabilities in xpdf,
which are also present in pdftohtml, a utility that translates PDF
documents into HTML format.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain pdftohtml packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.36-11sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.36-12.

We recommend that you upgrade your gpdf package.
