Synopsis
========

Multiple stack-based buffer overflows have been reported in PDFlib.

Background

    -------------------------------------------------------------------

Description
===========

poplix reported multiple boundary errors in the pdc_fsearch_fopen()
function when processing overly long filenames.

Impact
