       Technical details
       ---------------------------------------------------------------

       A PDF file format parsing vulnerability exists in the pdf2tif
       parser and can be exploited with a specially crafted input
       file. The plugin suffers from a buffer overflow flaw.

       Many server side applications use the library when converting
       pdf files to images. If an attacker is able to send the
       application a malicious file, successful exploitation leads to
       code being executed in  the context of the running application.

       Solution
       Upgrade to the latest version of the pdf2tif.dll.
