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

Derek Noonburg has fixed several potential vulnerabilities in xpdf,
the Portable Document Format (PDF) suite.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not seem to be affected.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.00-13.6.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.01-7.

We recommend that you upgrade your xpdf packages.

        will fetch the file for you

sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
