Updated kdegraphics packages that fix a security issue in PDF handling are
now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, and 5.
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.
Maurycy Prodeus discovered an integer overflow flaw in the processing
of PDF files. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would
cause kpdf to crash or potentially execute arbitrary code when opened.
All users of kdegraphics should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to resolve this issue.
