Description

An updated xpdf package that fixes several security issues is now available.

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

[Updated 20 Dec 2005] The initial fix for these issues was incomplete. The packages have been updated with a more complete fix.

The xpdf package is an X Window System-based viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF) files.

Several flaws were discovered in Xpdf. An attacker could construct a carefully crafted PDF file that could cause Xpdf to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code when opened. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the names CVE-2005-3191, CVE-2005-3192, and CVE-2005-3193 to these issues.

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

Red Hat would like to thank Derek B. Noonburg for reporting this issue and providing a patch.
