3. Description:

Poppler is a Portable Document Format (PDF) rendering library, used by
applications such as Evince.

An uninitialized pointer use flaw was discovered in poppler. An attacker
could create a malicious PDF file that, when opened, would cause
applications that use poppler (such as Evince) to crash or, potentially,
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-3702)

An array index error was found in the way poppler parsed PostScript Type 1
fonts embedded in PDF documents. An attacker could create a malicious PDF
file that, when opened, would cause applications that use poppler (such as
Evince) to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-3704)

Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to correct these issues.
