1. Topic:

An updated xpdf package that fixes several security issues is now
available.

The xpdf package is an X Window System-based viewer for Portable
Document Format (PDF) files.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.3 - i386
Red Hat Linux 9 - i386
Fedora Core 1 - i386
Fedora Core 2 - i386
Fedora Core 3 - i386, x86_64

3. Problem description:

A flaw was discovered in Xpdf in that an attacker could construct a
carefully crafted PDF file that would cause Xpdf to consume all
available disk space in /tmp when opened. The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures project assigned the name CVE-2005-2097 to this issue.

Several flaws were discovered in Xpdf. An attacker could construct a
carefully crafted PDF file that could cause Xpdf to crash or possibly
execute arbitrary code when opened. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project assigned the names CVE-2005-3191, CVE-2005-3192,
CVE-2005-3193, CVE-2005-3624, CVE-2005-3625, CVE-2005-3626,
CVE-2005-3627 and CVE-2005-3628 to these issues.

A heap based buffer overflow bug was discovered in Xpdf. An attacker
could construct a carefully crafted PDF file that could cause Xpdf to
crash or possibly execute arbitrary code when opened. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name CVE-2006-0301
to this issue.

Users of Xpdf should upgrade to this updated package, which contains
backported patches to resolve these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which
are not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note
that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only*
contains the desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via yum and apt. Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use yum issue:

yum update

or to use apt:

apt-get update; apt-get upgrade

This will start an interactive process that will result in the
appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system. This assumes that you
have yum or apt-get configured for obtaining Fedora Legacy content.
Please visit http://www.fedoralegacy.org/docs for directions on how to
configure yum and apt-get.
