(Red Hat Issues Fix) Xpdf Integer Overflows Let Remote Users Execute Arbitrary Code
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1023034
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1023034
CVE Reference:   CVE-2009-3603, CVE-2009-3604, CVE-2009-3606, CVE-2009-3608, CVE-2009-3609   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Oct 15 2009
Impact:   Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): prior to 3.02pl4
Description:   Several vulnerabilities were reported in Xpdf. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system.

A remote user can create a specially crafted PDF file that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger an integer overflow and execute arbitrary code on the target system. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

The SplashBitmap() function in 'SplashBitmap.c' is affected [CVE-2009-3603].

The drawImage() function in 'splash.c' is affected [CVE-2009-3604].

The doImageL1Sep() function in 'PSOutputDev.c' is affected [CVE-2009-3606].

The ObjectStream() function in 'ObjectStream.c' is affected [CVE-2009-3608].

The ImageStream() function in 'ImageStream.c' is affected [CVE-2009-3609].

Impact:   A remote user can create a PDF file that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.
Solution:   Red Hat has released a fix for CVE-2009-3604, CVE-2009-3606, CVE-2009-3608, and CVE-2009-3609.
