NULL Pointer Dereference in the XRef::parseEntry() function in XRef.cc
Memory corruption occurs in a call to Object::streamGetChar that may lead to a denial of service or other unspecified impact.
Potential buffer overflow in the ImageStream class in Stream.cc, which may lead to a denial of service or other unspecified impact.
For Debian 7
