CVE-2009-4035

NameCVE-2009-4035
DescriptionThe FoFiType1::parse function in fofi/FoFiType1.cc in Xpdf 3.0.0, gpdf 2.8.2, kpdf in kdegraphics 3.3.1, and possibly other libraries and versions, does not check the return value of the getNextLine function, which allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via a PDF file with a crafted Type 1 font that can produce a negative value, leading to a signed-to-unsigned integer conversion error and a buffer overflow.
SourceCVE (at NVD; CERT, LWN, oss-sec, fulldisc, Red Hat, Ubuntu, Gentoo, SUSE bugzilla/CVE, GitHub advisories/code/issues, web search, more)

Notes

was silently fixed by upstream xpdf, fix propagated to poppler in 4b4fc5c017b/2005-09-14
but at least version 0.4.5 does *not* contain the ship.
Was fixed somewhere between 0.4.5 and 0.5.1
