Fedora Core 4 : poppler-0.4.4-1.1 (2006-026)

This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

Chris Evans discovered several flaws in the way poppler processes PDF
files. 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
names CVE-2005-3624, CVE-2005-3625, CVE-2005-3626, and CVE-2005-3627
to 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.
