Description

An updated gpdf package that fixes several security issues 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.

The gpdf package is a GNOME based viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF) files.

Several flaws were discovered in gpdf. An attacker could construct a carefully crafted PDF file that could cause gpdf 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 gpdf should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a backported patch to resolve these issues.
