MDKSA-2006:054: kdegraphics Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the kdegraphics package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:054 (kdegraphics).
Marcelo Ricardo Leitner discovered the official published kpdf patches for
several previous xpdf vulnerabilities were lacking some hunks published by
upstream xpdf. As a result, kpdf is still vulnerable to certain carefully
crafted pdf files. Although previous updates captured most of these changes,
this new update picks up some of the missing patches. The updated packages have
been patched to correct these problems.
