Synopsis

The remote CentOS host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Updated kdegraphics packages that fix two security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

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

An uninitialized pointer use flaw was discovered in KPDF. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that, when opened, would cause KPDF to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-3702)

An array index error was found in the way KPDF parsed PostScript Type 1 fonts embedded in PDF documents. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that, when opened, would cause KPDF to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-3704)

Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues.

Solution

Update the affected kdegraphics packages.
