CentOS Errata and Security Advisory CESA-2009:1512

The kdegraphics packages contain applications for the K Desktop Environment, including KPDF, a viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF) files.

Multiple integer overflow flaws were found in KPDF. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause KPDF to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2009-0791, CVE-2009-1188, CVE-2009-3604, CVE-2009-3608, CVE-2009-3609)

Red Hat would like to thank Adam Zabrocki for reporting the CVE-2009-3604 issue, and Chris Rohlf for reporting the CVE-2009-3608 issue.

Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to resolve these issues.
