Fedora Core 3 2005-730: 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-2005-730 (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:

A flaw was discovered in Xpdf in that a possible hacker could
construct a carefully crafted PDF file that would cause Xpdf
to consume all available disk space in /tmp when opened. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name
CVE-2005-2097 to this issue.

Users of xpdf should upgrade to this updated package, which
contains a backported patch to resolve this issue.
