CUPS and Xpdf JBIG2 Symbol Dictionary Processing Heap Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

CUPS and Xpdf are prone to a remote buffer-overflow vulnerability because they fail to properly bounds-check user-supplied input before copying it into a finite-sized buffer.

Exploiting this issue may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code in the context of the affected application. Failed exploit attempts will likely cause denial-of-service conditions.

The following are vulnerable; other applications or versions may also be affected:

Xpdf 3.02pl2 and earlier
CUPS 1.3.9 and earlier

NOTE: This vulnerability may already be covered in BID 34568 (Xpdf JBIG2 Processing Multiple Security Vulnerabilities). We will update (or possibly retire) this BID as more information emerges.
