RHSA-2006-0262: kdegraphics

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the kdegraphics packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Updated kdegraphics packages that fully resolve a security issue in kpdf
are now available.

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

The kdegraphics packages contain applications for the K Desktop Environment
including kpdf, a PDF file viewer.

Marcelo Ricardo Leitner discovered that a kpdf security fix, CVE-2005-3627,
was incomplete. Red Hat issued kdegraphics packages with this incomplete
fix in RHSA-2005:868. A possible hacker could construct a carefully crafted PDF
file that could cause kpdf to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code when
opened. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name
CVE-2006-0746 to this issue.

Users of kpdf should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to resolve this issue.
