Debian-specific: no

Derek Noonburg has fixed several potential vulnerabilities in xpdf,
which are also present in libextractor, a library to extract arbitrary
meta-data from files.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain libextractor packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.4.2-2sarge3.

For the unstable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.5.10-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libextractor package.
