Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2005-034: xpdf

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the xpdf packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated xpdf package that fixes several security issues is now
available.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red
Hat
Security Response Team.

Xpdf is an X Window System based viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF)
files.

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the Gfx::doImage function 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-2004-1125 to this issue.

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the Decrypt::makeFileKey2 function of
Xpdf. A possible hacker 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-2005-0064 to this issue.

During a source code audit, Chris Evans and others discovered a number of
integer overflow bugs that affected all versions of Xpdf. A possible hacker could
construct a carefully crafted PDF file that could cause Xpdf to crash or
possibly execute arbitrary code when opened. This issue was assigned the
name CVE-2004-0888 by The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org). Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 contained a fix for this
issue, but it was found to be incomplete and left 64-bit architectures
vulnerable. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0206 to this issue.

All users of Xpdf should upgrade to this updated package, which contains
backported patches to resolve these issues.
