Description :

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2007:1024 :

Updated kdegraphics packages that fix several security issues are 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.

The kdegraphics packages contain applications for the K Desktop
Environment. This includes kpdf, a PDF file viewer.

attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause kpdf to
crash, or potentially execute arbitrary code when opened.

All kdegraphics users are advised to upgrade to these updated
