3. Problem description:

The xpdf package is an X Window System-based viewer for Portable Document
Format (PDF) files.

Several flaws were discovered in Xpdf.  An attacker could construct a
carefully crafted PDF file that could cause Xpdf to crash or possibly
execute arbitrary code when opened.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project assigned the name CAN-2005-3193 to these issues.

Users of Xpdf should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a
backported patch to resolve these issues.

Red Hat would like to thank Derek B. Noonburg for reporting this issue and
providing a patch.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
Network to download and update your packages.  To launch the Red Hat
Update Agent, use the following command:
