Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

Several flaws were discovered in Xpdf, which is used internally by
gpdf. An attacker could construct a carefully crafted PDF file that
could cause gpdf to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code when
opened. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the
name CVE-2005-3193 to these issues.

Users of gpdf should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a
patch to resolve 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.
