rPath Issue Tracking System:
Previous versions of the cups, poppler, and tetex packages contain
multiple vulnerabilities due to flaws in code included from Xpdf.
These flaws allow user-assisted attackers to execute arbitrary code
using maliciously crafted PDF files.
Note that applications linked against libpoppler may also be affected
by these vulnerabilities, and will be fixed by this update.
