The kdegraphics packages contain applications for the K Desktop Environment. This includes kpdf, a PDF file viewer. Alin Rad Pop discovered a flaw in the handling of PDF files. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause kpdf to crash, or potentially execute arbitrary code when opened. Fixed packages are available from updates.redhat.com.
