Debian DSA-1408-1 : kdegraphics - buffer overflow

High Nessus Plugin ID 28297


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


Alin Rad Pop discovered a buffer overflow in kpdf, which could allow the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed PDF file is displayed.

The old stable distribution (sarge) will be fixed later.


Upgrade the kdegraphics packages.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version 4:3.5.5-3etch2. Builds for arm and sparc are not yet available.
