Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

kpdf in KDE before 3.5.5, and other products, permits remote attackers
to have an unknown impact, possibly including denial of service
(infinite loop), arbitrary code execution, or memory corruption, via a
PDF file with a (1) crafted catalog dictionary or (2) a crafted Pages
