3. Problem description:

The gpdf package is a GNOME based viewer for Portable Document Format
(PDF) files.

Several flaws were discovered in gpdf. An attacker could construct a
carefully crafted PDF file that could cause gpdf to crash or possibly
execute arbitrary code when opened. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project assigned the names CVE-2005-3191, CVE-2005-3192, and
CVE-2005-3193 to these issues.

Users of gpdf should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a
backported patch to resolve these issues.

4. Solution:
