Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2004-348
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.
