poppler vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 12.10
- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 11.10
- Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

Summary:

Applications using poppler could be made to crash or possibly run programs
as your login if they opened a specially crafted file.

Software Description:
- poppler: PDF rendering library

Details:

It was discovered that poppler contained multiple security issues when
parsing malformed PDF documents. If a user or automated system were tricked
into opening a crafted PDF file, an attacker could cause a denial of

invoking the program.
