Description Tim Sammut (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-09-27 06:07:27 UTC
From $URL:

DESCRIPTION:
Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Poppler, which can be
exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) and
potentially compromise an application using the library.

The vulnerabilities are caused due to e.g. memory leak errors, array
indexing errors, and the use of uninitialized memory when parsing
malformed PDF files, which can be exploited to e.g. cause a crash by
tricking a user into processing a specially crafted PDF file in an
application using the library.

SOLUTION:
Fixed in the GIT repository.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
Joel Voss, Leviathan Security Group

Thanks, folks. GLSA together with bug 263028.
Comment 13 Andreas K. Hüttel gentoo-dev 2011-02-14 22:46:33 UTC
No vulnerable version left in tree. 
Nothing to do for kde here anymore.
Comment 14 GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2011-10-08 13:05:48 UTC
CVE-2010-3703 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2010-3703):
  The PostScriptFunction::PostScriptFunction function in poppler/Function.cc
  in the PDF parser in poppler 0.8.7 and possibly other versions up to 0.15.1,
  and possibly other products, allows context-dependent attackers to cause a
  denial of service (crash) via a PDF file that triggers an uninitialized
  pointer dereference.
Comment 15 Andreas K. Hüttel gentoo-dev 2013-03-16 11:43:29 UTC
Will anyone still read this GLSA if it ever comes out? Come on, stable is poppler-0.20 by now.
