1. Summary:

Updated kdegraphics packages that fix a security issue are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

3. Description:

The kdegraphics packages contain applications for the K Desktop

Kees Cook discovered a flaw in the way kpdf displayed malformed fonts
embedded in PDF files. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that
would cause kpdf to crash, or, potentially, execute arbitrary code when
opened. (CVE-2008-1693)

All kdegraphics users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain backported patches to resolve this issue.
