Posted on: 11/12/2007 12:35 PM

New xpdf packages are available for Slackware 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 11.0, 12.0, and -current. New poppler packages are available for Slackware 12.0 and -current. New koffice packages are available for Slackware 11.0, 12.0, and -current. New kdegraphics packages are available for Slackware 10.2, 11.0, 12.0, and -current.

These updated packages address similar bugs which could be used to crash applications linked with poppler or that use code from xpdf through the use of a malformed PDF document. It is possible that a maliciously crafted document could cause code to be executed in the context of the user running the application processing the PDF.

These advisories and CVE entries cover the bugs:

Where to find the new packages:

HINT: Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try. This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project! :-)
