|Summary:||Mandrake Security Advisory MDKSA-2007:021 (xpdf)|
The remote host is missing an update to xpdf
announced via advisory MDKSA-2007:021.
The Adobe PDF specification 1.3, as implemented by xpdf 3.0.1 patch 2,
kpdf in KDE before 3.5.5, and other products, allows remote attackers
to have an unknown impact, possibly including denial of service
(infinite loop), arbitrary code execution, or memory corruption, via a
PDF file with a (1) crafted catalog dictionary or (2) a crafted Pages
attribute that references an invalid page tree node.
The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
Affected: 2007.0, Corporate 3.0, Corporate 4.0
To upgrade automatically use MandrakeUpdate or urpmi. The verification
of md5 checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you.
