Description D'juan McDonald (domhnall) 2019-03-21 12:30:28 UTC

A heap-based buffer underwrite exists in ImageStream::getLine() located at in Poppler 0.74.0 that can (for example) be triggered by sending a crafted PDF file to the pdfimages binary. It allows an attacker to cause Denial of Service (Segmentation fault) or possibly have unspecified other impact.

         * Improve documentation
         * tests: Add showing version information to poppler-dump

         * pdfattach: new util
         * pdftohtml: add -dataurls parameter
         * pdftoppm: add -sep and -forcenum parameters
         * pdftohtml: make singleHtml and stout not mutually exclusive
         * pdfsig: fix use after free

Release 0.74.0:
         * Remove support for obsolete systems. Issue #709

         * Fix/silence some warnings
