Details

An updated xpdf package that fixes a security issue is now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

Xpdf is an X Window System based viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF)
files.

Petr Gajdos and Christian Kornacker of SUSE reported a buffer overflow flaw
in Xpdf's Type 1 font parser. A specially-crafted PDF file with an embedded
Type 1 font could cause Xpdf to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code
when opened. (CVE-2009-4035)

Users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which contains a
backported patch to correct this issue.
