Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

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

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
