Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2006-0262.html
Issue date:        2006-03-09

- ---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated kdegraphics packages that fully resolve a security issue 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
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

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

Marcelo Ricardo Leitner discovered that a kpdf security fix, CVE-2005-3627,
was incomplete.  Red Hat issued kdegraphics packages with this incomplete
fix in RHSA-2005:868.  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 name
CVE-2006-0746 to this issue.

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

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.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
