The remote host is missing updates announced in advisory RHSA-2009:1504. Poppler is a Portable Document Format (PDF) rendering library, used by applications such as Evince. Multiple integer overflow flaws were found in poppler. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause applications that use poppler (such as Evince) to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2009-3603, CVE-2009-3608, CVE-2009-3609) Red Hat would like to thank Chris Rohlf for reporting the CVE-2009-3608 issue. This update also corrects a regression introduced in the previous poppler security update, RHSA-2009:0480, that prevented poppler from rendering certain PDF documents correctly. (BZ#528147) Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues.
