Description : Xpdf is an X Window System based viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF) files. Xpdf is a small and efficient program which uses standard X fonts. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Update Information: 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.

Users of xpdf should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a backported patch to resolve this issue. --------------------------------------------------------------------- * Wed Jul 27 2005 Than Ngo <> 1:3.00-10.6.FC3 - better patch to fix CAN-2005-2097, #163918 * Tue Jul 26 2005 Than Ngo <> 1:3.00-10.5.FC3 - backport patch to fix xpdf DoS, CAN-2005-2097, #163918 - fix xpdf crash #163807 --------------------------------------------------------------------- This update can be downloaded from: f0fa9a37ace898d04be68f16b5a7bb14 SRPMS/xpdf-3.00-10.6.FC3.src.rpm 405fdeddfd2ca96646fcb2ae605f1c59 x86_64/xpdf-3.00-10.6.FC3.x86_64.rpm f577bca35f06c9c74460ffad33665614 x86_64/debug/xpdf-debuginfo-3.00-10.6.FC3.x86_64.rpm 80095ec93707eb9b74872f9b49d1a99a i386/xpdf-3.00-10.6.FC3.i386.rpm 14798c621432d77e3a41ec594a47f545 i386/debug/xpdf-debuginfo-3.00-10.6.FC3.i386.rpm This update can also be installed with the Update Agent; you can launch the Update Agent with the 'up2date' command. --------------------------------------------------------------------- -- fedora-announce-list mailing list
