Red Hat: An updated xpdf package fixes multiple security issues

Xpdf is an X Window System based viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF) files. Multiple flaws were found in Xpdf’s JBIG2 decoder that could lead to the freeing of arbitrary memory. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause Xpdf to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code when opened. Multiple input validation flaws were found in Xpdf’s JBIG2 decoder. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause Xpdf to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code when opened. Updated packages are available from updates.redhat.com.

or, potentially, execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2009-0147,
CVE-2009-1179)

Multiple buffer overflow flaws were found in Xpdf's JBIG2 decoder. An
attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause Xpdf to crash
or, potentially, execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2009-0146,
CVE-2009-1182)

Multiple flaws were found in Xpdf's JBIG2 decoder that could lead to the
freeing of arbitrary memory. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file
that would cause Xpdf to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code when
opened. (CVE-2009-0166, CVE-2009-1180)

Multiple input validation flaws were found in Xpdf's JBIG2 decoder. An
attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause Xpdf to crash
or, potentially, execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2009-0800)

Multiple denial of service flaws were found in Xpdf's JBIG2 decoder. An
attacker could create a malicious PDF that would cause Xpdf to crash when
