1. Summary:

Updated kdegraphics packages that resolve several security issues in kpdf
are now available.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64

3. Problem description:

The kdegraphics packages contain applications for the K Desktop Environment
including kpdf, a pdf file viewer.

Several flaws were discovered in kpdf. An attacker could construct a
carefully crafted PDF file that could cause kpdf to crash or possibly
execute arbitrary code when opened. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project assigned the names CVE-2005-3191, CVE-2005-3192, and
CVE-2005-3193 to these issues.

Users of kpdf should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to resolve these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.
