Test ID:
Category:Debian Local Security Checks
Title:Debian Security Advisory DSA 581-1 (xpdf)
The remote host is missing an update to xpdf
announced via advisory DSA 581-1.

Chris Evans discovered several integer overflows in xpdf, a viewer for
PDF files, which can be exploited remotely by a specially crafted PDF
document and lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.00-3.2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.00-9.

We recommend that you upgrade your xpdf package.
