[slackware-security]  xpdf/poppler/koffice/kdegraphics (SSA:2007-316-01)

New xpdf packages are available for Slackware 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 11.0,
12.0, and -current.  New poppler packages are available for Slackware 12.0
and -current.  New koffice packages are available for Slackware 11.0, 12.0,
and -current.  New kdegraphics packages are available for Slackware 10.2,
11.0, 12.0, and -current.

These updated packages address similar bugs which could be used to crash
applications linked with poppler or that use code from xpdf through the
use of a malformed PDF document.  It is possible that a maliciously
crafted document could cause code to be executed in the context of the
user running the application processing the PDF.

These advisories and CVE entries cover the bugs:

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
directly 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.
