Description

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2008:0262 :

An updated gpdf package that fixes a security issue 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.

Kees Cook discovered a flaw in the way gpdf displayed malformed fonts embedded in PDF files. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause gpdf to crash, or, potentially, execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2008-1693)

Users of gpdf are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which contains a backported patch to resolve this issue.
