Description

Updated kdegraphics packages that resolve a security issue in kpdf are now available. This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

The kdegraphics packages contain applications for the K Desktop Environment including kpdf, a pdf file viewer. A heap based buffer overflow bug was discovered in kpdf. An attacker could construct a carefully crafted PDF file that could cause kpdf to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code when opened. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name CVE-2006-0301 to this issue. Users of kpdf should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to resolve this issue.
