Package        : gpdf
Vulnerability  : integer overflow
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2007-3387

It was discovered that an integer overflow in xpdf PDF viewer may lead
to the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed PDF file is opened.

gpdf includes a copy of the xpdf code and requires an update as well.

For the oldstable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.8.2-1.2sarge6.

The stable distribution (etch) no longer contains gpdf.

The unstable distribution (sid) no longer contains gpdf.

We recommend that you upgrade your gpdf packages.
