MDKSA-2003:071-1: xpdf Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the xpdf package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2003:071-1 (xpdf).

Martyn Gilmore discovered flaws in various PDF viewers, including xpdf. An
attacker could place malicious external hyperlinks in a document that, if
followed, could execute arbitary shell commands with the rights of the
person viewing the PDF document.
New packages are available as the previous patches that had been applied did not
correct all possible ways of exploiting this issue.
