Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : xpdf
Version : 3.00
Release : 10.6.FC3
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:

A flaw was discovered in Xpdf in that an attacker could
construct a carefully crafted PDF file that would cause Xpdf
to consume all available disk space in /tmp when opened. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name
CAN-2005-2097 to this issue.

Users of xpdf should upgrade to this updated package, which
contains a backported patch to resolve this issue.
