USN-5606-2: poppler regression
14 September 2022
USN-5606-1 caused a regression in poppler.
- poppler - PDF rendering library
USN-5606-1 fixed a vulnerability in poppler. Unfortunately it was missing a
commit to fix it properly. This update provides
the corresponding fix for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and Ubuntu 16.04 ESM.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
Original advisory details:
It was discovered that poppler incorrectly handled certain
PDF. An attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a
denial of service or execute arbitrary code.
The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:
- libpoppler58 - 0.41.0-0ubuntu1.16+esm2
- poppler-utils - 0.41.0-0ubuntu1.16+esm2
- libpoppler-private-dev - 0.41.0-0ubuntu1.16+esm2
In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
