Debian: New xpdf packages fix several vulnerabilities

Several vulnerabilities have been identified in xpdf, a suite of tools for viewing and converting Portable Document Format (PDF) files. Integer overflows might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or an application crash. A NULL pointer dereference or heap-based buffer overflow in Splash::drawImage might allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.
