Fedora Core 2 : kdegraphics-3.2.2-1.1 (2004-357)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 15584


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


A problem with PDF handling was discovered by Chris Evans, and has been fixed. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (www.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0888 to this issue.

a number of buffer overflow bugs that affect libtiff have been found.
The kfax application contains a copy of the libtiff code used for parsing TIFF files and is therefore affected by these bugs. An attacker who has the ability to trick a user into opening a malicious TIFF file could cause kfax to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0803 to this issue.

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.


Update the affected kdegraphics, kdegraphics-debuginfo and / or kdegraphics-devel packages.
