    Two buffer allocation issues were identified in poppler. CVE-2019-9959
    Package        : poppler
    Version        : 0.26.5-2+deb8u12
    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-9959 CVE-2019-10871
    Two buffer allocation issues were identified in poppler.
        An unexpected negative length value can cause an integer
        overflow, which in turn making it possible to allocate a large
        memory chunk on the heap with size controlled by an attacker.
        The RGB data are considered CMYK data and hence it reads 4 bytes
        instead of 3 bytes at the end of the image. The fixed version
        defines SPLASH_CMYK which is the upstream recommended solution.
    For Debian 8 "Jessie", these problems have been fixed in version
    We recommend that you upgrade your poppler packages.
