Package        : pdftohtml
Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs        : CVE-2005-3191 CVE-2005-3192 CVE-2005-3193 CVE-2005-3624
                 CVE-2005-3625 CVE-2005-3626 CVE-2005-3627 CVE-2005-3628

"infamous41md" and Chris Evans discovered several heap based buffer
overflows in xpdf which are also present in pdftohtml, a utility that
translates PDF documents into HTML format, and which can lead to a
denial of service by crashing the application or possibly to the
execution of arbitrary code.

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

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.36-11sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your pdftohtml package.
