Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-729 (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 patch to resolve this issue.
