1. Summary:

Updated kdegraphics packages that fix several security issues are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

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. This includes kpdf, a PDF file viewer.

Alin Rad Pop discovered several flaws in the handling of PDF files. An
attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause kpdf to crash,
or potentially execute arbitrary code when opened. 
(CVE-2007-4352, CVE-2007-5392, CVE-2007-5393)

All kdegraphics users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain backported patches to resolve these issues.
