[SECURITY] [DLA 1562-3] poppler regression update

Package        : poppler
Version        : 0.26.5-2+deb8u7
CVE ID         : CVE-2018-16646
Debian Bug     : 

A second regression issue has been resolved in the poppler PDF rendering
shared library this time introduced with version 0.26.5-2+deb8u6 (see
DLA 1562-2).


    In Poppler 0.68.0, the Parser::getObj() function in Parser.cc may
    cause infinite recursion via a crafted file. A remote attacker can
    leverage this for a DoS attack.

    The poppler upstream developers added two more regression fixes on top
    of the original fix (upstream merge request #91). These two patches
    have now been added to the poppler package in Debian jessie LTS.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your poppler packages.
