------- Original comment by Mark J. Cox (Security Response Team) on 2004.10.12
During a source code audit, Chris Evans and others discovered a number
of integer overflow bugs that affected all versions of xpdf. An
attacker could construct a carefully crafted PDF file that could cause
xpdf to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code when opened.
