Description

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2009:1682 :

Updated kdegraphics packages that fix a security issue are 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.

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

Petr Gajdos and Christian Kornacker of SUSE reported a buffer overflow flaw in KPDF's Type 1 font parser. A specially crafted PDF file with an embedded Type 1 font could cause KPDF to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2009-4035)

Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
