Description Michael Palimaka (kensington) gentoo-dev 2017-08-09 11:42:24 UTC
The function GfxImageColorMap::getGray in in Poppler 0.54.0 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (stack-based buffer over-read and application crash) via a crafted PDF document, related to missing color-map validation in
Comment 1 Michael Palimaka (kensington) gentoo-dev 2017-08-09 11:48:33 UTC
We're quite behind on poppler version so barring any major issues I think we should proceed with stabilising the latest 0.57.0.

We'll need to coordinate with office team for libreoffice-bin and we'll need to look into some revdep issues like bug #626844 and bug #626874.
Comment 2 Michael Palimaka (kensington) gentoo-dev 2017-08-12 08:38:39 UTC
I've done a quick test of the revdeps, and haven't found any other issues beyond what are already marked as blocking this bug.
Comment 3 Michael Palimaka (kensington) gentoo-dev 2017-10-01 11:57:25 UTC
Let's proceed with stabilising app-text/poppler-0.57.0.
