Fedora Core 2 : xpdf-3.00-3.4 (2004-348)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

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

During a source code audit, Chris Evans and others discovered a number
of integer overflow bugs that affected all versions of xpdf. An
attacker could construct a carefully crafted PDF file that could cause
xpdf to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code when opened. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2004-0888 to this issue.

Users of xpdf are advised to upgrade to this errata package, which
contains a backported patch correcting these issues.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
