Synopsis :

The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.

Description :

New xpdf packages are available for Slackware 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2,
11.0, 12.0, and -current. New poppler packages are available for
Slackware 12.0 and -current. New koffice packages are available for
Slackware 11.0, 12.0, and -current. New kdegraphics packages are
available for Slackware 10.2, 11.0, 12.0, and -current. These updated
packages address similar bugs which could be used to crash
applications linked with poppler or that use code from xpdf through
the use of a malformed PDF document. It is possible that a maliciously
crafted document could cause code to be executed in the context of the
user running the application processing the PDF. These advisories and
CVE entries cover the bugs:
