Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2006:0648

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2006:0648.

The kdegraphics package contains graphics applications for the K Desktop

Tavis Ormandy of Google discovered a number of flaws in libtiff during a
security audit. The kfax application contains a copy of the libtiff code
used for parsing TIFF files and is therefore affected by these flaws.
An attacker who has the ability to trick a user into opening a malicious
TIFF file could cause kfax to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2006-3459, CVE-2006-3460, CVE-2006-3461, CVE-2006-3462, CVE-2006-3463,
CVE-2006-3464, CVE-2006-3465)

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 is not vulnerable to these issues as kfax uses
the shared libtiff library which has been fixed in a previous update.

Users of kfax should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches and are not vulnerable to 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
