Fedora Core 3 : gpdf-2.8.2-7.2 (2006-025)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 20406
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description

Chris Evans discovered several flaws in the way CUPS processes PDF files. An attacker could construct a carefully crafted PDF file that could cause CUPS 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.

Solution

Update the affected gpdf and / or gpdf-debuginfo packages.
