The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.


Updated kdegraphics packages that fix multiple security issues are 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.

The kdegraphics packages contain applications for the K Desktop Environment, including KPDF, a viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF) files.

Multiple integer overflow flaws were found in KPDF. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause KPDF to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2009-0791, CVE-2009-1188, CVE-2009-3604, CVE-2009-3608, CVE-2009-3609)
