Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 3 2006-025: gpdf

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the gpdf package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2006-025 (gpdf).

This is GPdf, a viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF) files for
GNOME. GPdf is based on the Xpdf program and uses additional GNOME
libraries for better desktop integration.

GPdf includes the gpdf application, a Bonobo control for PDF display
which can be embedded in Nautilus, and a Nautilus property page for
PDF files.

Update Information:

Chris Evans discovered several flaws in the way CUPS
processes PDF files. A possible hacker could construct a carefully
crafted PDF file that could cause CUPS to crash or possibly
execute arbitrary code when opened. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the names
CVE-2005-3624, CVE-2005-3625, CVE-2005-3626, and
CVE-2005-3627 to these issues.
