Description

xpdf and kpdf do not properly validate the "loca" table in PDF files, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (disk consumption and hang) via a PDF file with a "broken" loca table, which causes a large temporary file to be created when xpdf attempts to reconstruct the information.

Solution(s)

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
