GLSA-200710-08 : KOffice, KWord, KPDF, KDE Graphics Libraries: Stack-based buffer overflow

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200710-08
(KOffice, KWord, KPDF, KDE Graphics Libraries: Stack-based buffer overflow)

KPDF includes code from xpdf that is vulnerable to an integer overflow
in the StreamPredictor::StreamPredictor() function.

Impact :

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted PDF
file in KWord or KPDF that would exploit the integer overflow to cause
a stack-based buffer overflow in the StreamPredictor::getNextLine()
function, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with
the privileges of the user running the application.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
