DESCRIPTION
 Xpdf is a viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF) files.
 
 This update fixes a vulnerability that allows attackers to embed
 commands in document hyperlinks. If the user clicks in an hyperlink
 created by the attacker, it can execute malicious commands when
 calling a external program (web browsers, mail programs, etc).
 
 The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
 assigned the name CAN-2003-0434 to this issue.


SOLUTION
 All xpdf users should upgrade.
