[slackware-security]  xpdf (SSA:2007-222-05)

New xpdf packages are available for Slackware 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 11.0,
and 12.0 to fix an integer overflow.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

Here are the details from the Slackware 12.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/xpdf-3.02pl1-i486-1_slack12.0.tgz:
  Upgraded to xpdf-3.02pl1.  This fixes an integer overflow that could possibly
  be leveraged to run arbitrary code if a malicious PDF file is processed.

Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
