More information:

A few issues were found in Atril, the MATE document viewer.

  • CVE-2017-1000159

    When printing from DVI to PDF, the dvipdfm tool was called without properly sanitizing the filename, which could lead to a command injection attack via the filename.

  • CVE-2019-11459

    The tiff_document_render() and tiff_document_get_thumbnail() did not check the status of TIFFReadRGBAImageOriented(), leading to uninitialized memory access if that funcion fails.

  • CVE-2019-1010006

    Some buffer overflow checks were not properly done, leading to application crash or possibly arbitrary code execution when opening maliciously crafted files.

For Debian 8 Jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 1.8.1+dfsg1-4+deb8u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your atril packages.
