    Several flaws were discovered in Xpdf. An attacker could construct a carefully crafted PDF file that could cause xpdf to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code when opened. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name CAN-2005-3193 to these issues. Users of xpdf should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a patch to resolve these issues.
