+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #173888 +++
Numerous issue have been discovered in xpdf (which cups contains the source for)
An attacker could construct a carefully crafted PDF file that could cause Xpdf
to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code when opened.
This issue should also affect RHEL3
I will attach a patch as soon as we have a complete one.
The patches for these issues are in attachment 122226 [details] and attachment 122227 [details].
The sooner we can have new packages rolled the better as the Christmas holiday
is quickly approaching.
Do we have an RHTS test case for this?
There aren't currently any reproducers for these issues.
Please note that these issues affect xpdf, kdegraphics, cups, gpdf, tetex and
poppler. Some cooperation will probably make things easier.
