Red Hat: Updated poppler packages fix multiple security issues

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. Updated packages are available from updates.redhat.com.

3. Description:

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.
