RHSA-2005-840: 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.

The xpdf package is an X Window System-based viewer for Portable Document
Format (PDF) files.

Several flaws were discovered in 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 assigned the name CAN-2005-3193 to these issues.

Users of Xpdf should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a
backported patch to resolve these issues.

Red Hat would like to thank Derek B. Noonburg for reporting this issue and
providing a patch.
