Description

An updated xpdf package that fixes one security issue is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section.

Xpdf is an X Window System based viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF) files.

An uninitialized pointer use flaw was discovered in Xpdf. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that, when opened, would cause Xpdf to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-3702)

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