Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2004-592: xpdf

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the xpdf packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated xpdf package that fixes a number of integer overflow security
flaws is now available.

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.
