patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200601-02
(KPdf, KWord: Multiple overflows in included Xpdf code)

KPdf and KWord both include Xpdf code to handle PDF files. This Xpdf
code is vulnerable to several heap overflows (GLSA 200512-08) as well
as several buffer and integer overflows discovered by Chris Evans
(CESA-2005-003).

An attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted PDF file
with Kpdf or KWord, potentially resulting in the execution of arbitrary
code with the rights of the user running the affected application.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
