Two remotely exploitable security flaws involving incorrect handling of certain malformed PDF files were discovered in the Poppler PDF rendering library (CVE-2020-36023 and CVE-2020-36024). These vulnerabilities could result in crashes leading to denial of service (DoS).

Updates for Poppler that mitigate these issues are now available. We strongly recommend that all impacted users apply the updates issued by Debian LTS, Mageia, and Ubuntu as soon as possible to protect against loss of access to critical systems.
