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
service or execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user invoking the
program.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 9.10
Ubuntu 9.04
Ubuntu 8.04
Ubuntu 6.06
Ubuntu 10.10
Ubuntu 10.04

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
