Check for the version of the gpdf packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated gpdf package that fixes several security issues is now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

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

gpdf is a GNOME based viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF) files.

Chris Evans discovered several flaws in the way gpdf processes PDF files.
A possible hacker could construct a carefully crafted PDF file that could cause
gpdf to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code when opened. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the names CVE-2005-3624,
CVE-2005-3625, CVE-2005-3626, and CVE-2005-3627 to these issues.

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