DLA-1164-1 mupdf -- LTS security update
- Date Reported:
- 07 Nov 2017
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 877379, Bug 879055.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2017-14687, CVE-2017-15587.
- More information:
Two security issues were discovered in mupdf, a lightweight PDF viewer.
MuPDF allows attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted .xps file. This occurs because of mishandling of XML tag name comparisons.
An integer overflow was discovered in pdf_read_new_xref_section in pdf/pdf-xref.c
For Debian 7
Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 0.9-2+deb7u4.
We recommend that you upgrade your mupdf packages.
