Description Josh Bressers 2004-10-28 14:32:40 EDT
During a source code audit, Chris Evans and others discovered a number
of integer overflow bugs that affected all versions of xpdf.  An
attacker could construct a carefully crafted PDF file that could cause
xpdf to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code when opened.

tetex contains an internal version of xpdf.

See bug 135393 for patches and demo pdf files.

This issue should also affect RHEL2.1
