-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 _______________________________________________________________________ Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2013:272 _______________________________________________________________________ Package : poppler Date : November 21, 2013 Affected: Business Server 1.0 _______________________________________________________________________ Problem Description: Updated poppler packages fix security vulnerabilities: Poppler is found to be affected by a stack based buffer overflow vulnerability in the pdfseparate utility. Successfully exploiting this issue could allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code in the context of the affected application. Failed exploits may result in denial-of-service conditions (CVE-2013-4473). Poppler was found to have a user controlled format string vulnerability because it fails to sanitize user-supplied input. An attacker may exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code in the context of the vulnerable application. Failed exploit attempts will likely result in a denial-of-service condition (CVE-2013-4474). _______________________________________________________________________ References: _______________________________________________________________________ Updated Packages: Mandriva Business Server 1/X86_64: d1a749ade26ec47b8bdd900cea7be361 mbs1/x86_64/lib64poppler19-0.18.4-3.2.mbs1.x86_64.rpm 53ee4f21bf01192e827c960a8deafcb0 mbs1/x86_64/lib64poppler-cpp0-0.18.4-3.2.mbs1.x86_64.rpm 661c1fcdc8c0f0cf1bfc3a43275a6895 mbs1/x86_64/lib64poppler-cpp-devel-0.18.4-3.2.mbs1.x86_64.rpm cfbda8f79820fada6274cd550049532a mbs1/x86_64/lib64poppler-devel-0.18.4-3.2.mbs1.x86_64.rpm 378519dd3dd92f45531a8ca536b8c92a mbs1/x86_64/lib64poppler-gir0.18-0.18.4-3.2.mbs1.x86_64.rpm d6e0aefe7506a27676a7c3dbfaeba7b9 mbs1/x86_64/lib64poppler-glib8-0.18.4-3.2.mbs1.x86_64.rpm ee9bbc3c5654a25031d323139498086f mbs1/x86_64/lib64poppler-glib-devel-0.18.4-3.2.mbs1.x86_64.rpm fe312c8cc70fd79b9af692406d14528e mbs1/x86_64/poppler-0.18.4-3.2.mbs1.x86_64.rpm c819c49c510eef5d0060a64fb0db40f1 mbs1/SRPMS/poppler-0.18.4-3.2.mbs1.src.rpm _______________________________________________________________________ To upgrade automatically use MandrivaUpdate or urpmi.
