Secunia Research reported three security bugs in xpdf. The first problem occurs while indexing an array in DCTStream:: readProgressiveDataUnit() and is tracked by CVE-2007-4352. Another method in the same class named reset() is vulnerable to an integer overflow which leads to an overflow on the heap, CVE-2007-5392.
