<description>
<p>
Dirk Mueller has reported a vulnerability in Xpdf. It is caused by
a missing boundary check in the splash rasterizer engine when handling
PDF splash images with overly large dimensions.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
By sending a specially crafted PDF file to a victim, an attacker
could cause an overflow, potentially resulting in the execution of
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>

All Xpdf users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=app-text/xpdf-3.01-r7&quot;</code>

All Poppler users should upgrade to the latest version:
