Description Pablo De Nápoli 2004-10-31 07:53:52 UTC
Acording to the official Koffice release notes, koffice-1.3.4 has an integer overflow vulnerability fix in KWord's PDF import filter which is weak against compiler optimization.

A patch is available at

Please patch the source with it.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

Looks like the original patch introduced in GLSA 200410-30 and bug 68558 may not be sufficient...

KDE team : We might have to repatch this :/
Comment 2 Simone Gotti (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-10-31 08:50:01 UTC
The reported link doesn't works for me.
This one works

BTW I've noticed that in KDECVS a similar patch was applied also to kpdf, but didn't find any report: >> IT'S WRONG >> IT'S RIGHT BUT APPLIED ON THE UPPER ONE.
Comment 3 Carsten Lohrke (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-10-31 09:06:39 UTC
Can't find/verify gpg signature. The patch looks good, though.

<<< koffice-1.3.3-r2.ebuild
<<< koffice-1.3.4-r1.ebuild

Arch herds, I have to ask you again: Please mark either one of the above ebuilds stable.

ppc64: Would be nice, if you would use the "second chance". I can dump the old ebuilds in one rush then.
Comment 4 Michael Hanselmann (hansmi) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-10-31 10:44:42 UTC
Stable on ppc.

Comment 9 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-03 03:12:12 UTC
Looks the same as (still not public) bug 69662 to me. Patches are different, but I would say they patch the same thing. Can someone with access double-confirm this is a different issue ?
Comment 10 Carsten Lohrke (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-03 09:24:17 UTC
Koon: Yes, it is. Koffice is fixed, kdegraphics fixes follow in a few minutes.
Comment 11 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-03 12:30:42 UTC
Thanks Carsten for clarification.
We'll probably group xpdf 64 bit GLSAs (or update the old xpdf one).
Comment 12 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-05 04:53:41 UTC
Will be released as a 200410-30 update when bug 69936 will be done.
Comment 13 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-06 05:33:51 UTC
GLSA 200410-30:02 update out
