- More information:
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in MuPDF, a PDF file viewer, which may result in denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code.
WangLin discovered that a crafted .xps file can crash MuPDF and potentially execute arbitrary code in several ways, since the application makes unchecked assumptions on the entry format.
Terry Chia and Jeremy Heng discovered an integer overflow that can cause arbitrary code execution via a crafted .pdf file.
For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 1.9a+ds1-4+deb9u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your mupdf packages.
