Fedora Core 4 : xpdf-3.01-0.FC4.8 (2006-104)

High Nessus Plugin ID 20882


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


xpdf contains a heap based buffer overflow in the splash rasterizer engine that can crash kpdf or even execute arbitrary code.

Users impacted by these issues, should update to this new package release.

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 xpdf and / or xpdf-debuginfo packages.
