Flaw bug created to hold information about an old flaw we knew something about. For more details see the MITRE CVE description.

Comment 1 Stephen Herr 2018-08-16 16:32:58 UTC
MITRE description:

The CCITTFaxStream::CCITTFaxStream function in Stream.cc for xpdf, gpdf, kpdf, pdftohtml, poppler, teTeX, CUPS, libextractor, and others allows attackers to corrupt the heap via negative or large integers in a CCITTFaxDecode stream, which lead to integer overflows and integer underflows.

Statement:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 is not vulnerable to this issue as it contains a backported patch.
