                    Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
    ________________________________________________________________________

    Package name: xpdf
    Advisory ID: MDKSA-2003:071-1
    Date: July 23rd, 2003
    Original Advisory Date: June 27th, 2003
    Affected versions: 9.0, 9.1, Corporate Server 2.1
    ________________________________________________________________________

    Problem Description:

     Martyn Gilmore discovered flaws in various PDF viewers, including xpdf.
     An attacker could place malicious external hyperlinks in a document
     that, if followed, could execute arbitary shell commands with the
     privileges of the person viewing the PDF document.
      
    Update:

     New packages are available as the previous patches that had been
     applied did not correct all possible ways of exploiting this issue.
