Description Tomas Hoger 2008-03-20 09:18:34 EDT
It was discovered that patch applied to cups packages as shipped in Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 3 and 4 to address security issues in xpdf code known as
CVE-2004-0888 / CVE-2005-0206 was incomplete.

On certain platforms, malicious pdf file could still cause a crash or possibly
cause code execution when it's processed by pdftops filter.

This issue affects 64-bit platforms.  cups packages in Red Hat Enterprise Linux
5 are not affected by this problem.
