    Alin Rad Pop (Secunia) discovered a number of vulnerabilities in xpdf, a set
    of tools for display and conversion of Portable Document Format (PDF) files.
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
    three problems:
    
    CVE-2007-4352
    
        Inadequate DCT stream validation allows an attacker to corrupt
        memory and potentially execute arbitrary code by supplying a
        maliciously crafted PDF file.
    
    CVE-2007-5392
    
        An integer overflow vulnerability in DCT stream handling could
        allow an attacker to overflow a heap buffer, enabling the execution
        of arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2007-5393
    
        A buffer overflow vulnerability in xpdf's CCITT image compression
        handlers allows overflow on the heap, allowing an attacker to
        execute arbitrary code by supplying a maliciously crafted
        CCITTFaxDecode filter.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.01-9.1+etch2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.02-1.3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your xpdf packages.
