Mandriva: Updated xpdf packages fix crafted pdf file vulnerability
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake The Adobe PDF specification 1.3, as implemented by xpdf 3.0.1 patch 2, kpdf in KDE before 3.5.5, and other products, allows remote attackers to have an unknown impact, possibly including denial of service (infinite loop), arbitrary code execution, or memory corruption, via a PDF file with a (1) crafted catalog dictionary or (2) a crafted Pages attribute that references an invalid page tree node. The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
