The kdegraphics packages contain applications for the K Desktop Environment
including kpdf, a pdf file viewer.

A flaw was discovered in kpdf. An attacker could construct a carefully
crafted PDF file that would cause kpdf to consume all available disk space
in /tmp when opened. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
assigned the name CAN-2005-2097 to this issue.

Note this issue does not affect Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 or 2.1.

Users of kpdf should upgrade to these updated packages, which contains a
backported patch to resolve this issue.
