- Date Reported:
- 30 Sep 2019
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2018-20650, CVE-2018-21009, CVE-2019-12493.
- More information:
Several issues in poppler, a PDF rendering library, have been fixed.
A missing check for the dict data type could lead to a denial of service.
An integer overflow might happen in Parser::makeStream.
A stack-based buffer over-read by a crafted PDF file might happen in PostScriptFunction::transform because some functions mishandle tint transformation.
For Debian 8
Jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 0.26.5-2+deb8u11.
We recommend that you upgrade your poppler packages.
