The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. The gpdf package is a GNOME based viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF) files. Several flaws were discovered in 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 names CVE-2005-3191, CVE-2005-3192, and CVE-2005-3193 to these issues.
