Ubuntu 5.04 / 5.10 : kdegraphics, koffice vulnerabilities (USN-236-2)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 20782

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

USN-236-1 fixed several vulnerabilities in xpdf. kpdf and kword contain copies of xpdf code and are thus vulnerable to the same issues.

For reference, this is the original advisory :

Chris Evans discovered several integer overflows in the XPDF code, which is present in xpdf, the Poppler library, and tetex-bin. By tricking an user into opening a specially crafted PDF file, an attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the application that processes the document.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
