Description Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-12-21 09:10:25 UTC
kfax includes xpdf code and therefore might be vulnerable to CAN-2004-1125.
Please see bug 75191 for details and the patch.
Comment 1 Caleb Tennis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-12-21 09:44:32 UTC
hasn't this already been fixed and GLSA'd?
Comment 2 Caleb Tennis (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-12-21 09:46:01 UTC
...or is this a new vulnerability?
Comment 3 Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-12-21 09:49:24 UTC
A new vulnerability in xpdf that might affect kde. I think koon meant kpdf and not kfax.
Comment 4 Matthias Geerdsen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-12-21 12:56:27 UTC
kpdf seem to include the vulnerable code and the patch applies cleanly
upstream has been notified

kde, pls provide an updated ebuild

sparc please mark 3.2.3-r3 and 3.3.2-r1 stable.
amd64 please mark 3.2.3-r3 stable if possible or GLSA should get an amd64 specific affected version section.

Stable on amd64
Comment 15 Jason Wever (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-01-09 09:12:13 UTC
Just letting you know that sparc is looking into this.  Been having some problems with kicker crashing on startup that seem to affect both 3.2.3 and 3.3.x.  Trying to isolate this.

Comment 19 Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-01-11 22:41:20 UTC
