Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA1008] DSA-1008-1 kdegraphics

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-1008-1 kdegraphics

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Marcelo Ricardo Leitner noticed that the current patch in DSA 932
(CVE-2005-3627) for kpdf, the PDF viewer for KDE, does not fix all
buffer overflows, still permiting a possible hacker to execute arbitrary
code.
The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain kpdf packages.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.3.2-2sarge4.
The unstable distribution (sid) is not affected by this problem.
We recommend that you upgrade your kpdf package.
