Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 2 2004-348: xpdf

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the xpdf package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2004-348 (xpdf).

Xpdf is an X Window System based viewer for Portable Document Format
(PDF) files. Xpdf is a small and efficient program which uses
standard X fonts.

Update Information:

Xpdf is an X Window System based viewer for Portable Document Format
(PDF) files.

During a source code audit, Chris Evans and others discovered a number
of integer overflow bugs that affected all versions of xpdf. An
attacker could construct a carefully crafted PDF file that could cause
xpdf to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code when opened. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CVE-2004-0888 to this issue.

Users of xpdf are advised to upgrade to this errata package, which contains
a backported patch correcting these issues.
