1. Topic:

An updated gpdf package that fixes several security issues is now
available.

The gpdf package is a GNOME based viewer for Portable Document Format
(PDF) files.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Fedora Core 1 - i386
Fedora Core 2 - i386
Fedora Core 3 - i386, x86_64

3. Problem description:

A flaw was discovered in gpdf. An attacker could construct a carefully
crafted PDF file that would cause gpdf to consume all available disk
space in /tmp when opened. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project assigned the name CVE-2005-2097 to this issue.

Several flaws were discovered in gpdf. An attacker could construct a
carefully crafted PDF file that could cause gpdf to crash or possibly
execute arbitrary code when opened. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project assigned the names CVE-2005-3191, CVE-2005-3192,
CVE-2005-3193, CVE-2005-3624, CVE-2005-3625, CVE-2005-3626,
CVE-2005-3627 and CVE-2005-3628 to these issues.

Users of gpdf should upgrade to this updated package, which contains
backported patches to resolve these issues.

4. Solution:

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

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which
are not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note
that you can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only*
contains the desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via yum and apt. Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use yum issue:

yum update

or to use apt:

apt-get update; apt-get upgrade

This will start an interactive process that will result in the
appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system. This assumes that you
have yum or apt-get configured for obtaining Fedora Legacy content.
Please visit http://www.fedoralegacy.org/docs for directions on how to
configure yum and apt-get.

These packages are GPG signed by Fedora Legacy for security. Our key is
available from http://www.fedoralegacy.org/about/security.php

You can verify each package with the following command:

rpm --checksig -v <filename>

If you only wish to verify that each package has not been corrupted or
tampered with, examine only the sha1sum with the following command:

sha1sum <filename>
