SynopsisThe remote CentOS host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAn updated gpdf package that fixes several security issues is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.
This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.
gpdf is a GNOME based viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF) files.
Chris Evans discovered several flaws in the way gpdf processes PDF files. 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-2005-3624, CVE-2005-3625, CVE-2005-3626, and CVE-2005-3627 to these issues.
Users of gpdf should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a backported patch to resolve these issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected gpdf package.
