2004-10-21


Product : Fedora Core 2
Name : xpdf
Version : 3.00
Release : 3.4
Summary : A PDF file viewer for the X Window System.

Description :
Xpdf is an X Window System based viewer for Portable Document
Format (PDF) files. Xpdf is a small and efficient program which
uses standard X fonts.


Update Information:

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

During a source code audit, Chris Evans and others discovered a
number of integer overflow bugs that affected all versions of 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 (cve.mitre.org/) has assigned the name
CAN-2004-0888 to this issue.

Users of xpdf are advised to upgrade to this errata package,
which contains a backported patch correcting these issues.
