3. Problem description:

The xpdf package 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. This issue was assigned the name CAN-2004-0888 by The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org). RHSA-2004:592 contained a fix for this issue, but it was found to be incomplete and left 64-bit architectures vulnerable. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0206 to this issue.

All users of xpdf should upgrade to this updated package, which contains backported patches to resolve these issues.

4. Solution:
