GLSA-200501-32 : KPdf, KOffice: Stack overflow in included Xpdf code
High Nessus Plugin ID 16423
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200501-32 (KPdf, KOffice: Stack overflow in included Xpdf code)
KPdf and KOffice both include Xpdf code to handle PDF files. Xpdf is vulnerable to a new stack overflow, as described in GLSA 200501-28.
An attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted PDF file, potentially resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running the affected application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll KPdf users should upgrade to the latest version of kdegraphics:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose kde-base/kdegraphics All KOffice users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose app-office/koffice
