Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2006:0262

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2006:0262.

The kdegraphics packages contain applications for the K Desktop Environment
including kpdf, a PDF file viewer.

Marcelo Ricardo Leitner discovered that a kpdf security fix, CVE-2005-3627,
was incomplete. Red Hat issued kdegraphics packages with this incomplete
fix in RHSA-2005:868. 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-2006-0746 to this issue.

Users of kpdf should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to resolve this issue.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
