==========================================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-1785-1
April 02, 2013

poppler vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 12.10
- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 11.10
- Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

Summary:

Applications using poppler could be made to crash or possibly run programs
as your login if they opened a specially crafted file.

Software Description:
- poppler: PDF rendering library

Details:

It was discovered that poppler contained multiple security issues when
parsing malformed PDF documents. If a user or automated system were tricked
into opening a crafted PDF file, an attacker could cause a denial of
service or possibly execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user
invoking the program.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 12.10:
  libpoppler-glib8                0.20.4-0ubuntu1.2
  libpoppler28                    0.20.4-0ubuntu1.2

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
  libpoppler-glib8                0.18.4-1ubuntu3.1
  libpoppler19                    0.18.4-1ubuntu3.1

Ubuntu 11.10:
  libpoppler-glib6                0.16.7-2ubuntu2.1
  libpoppler13                    0.16.7-2ubuntu2.1

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
  libpoppler-glib4                0.12.4-0ubuntu5.3
  libpoppler5                     0.12.4-0ubuntu5.3
