Technical Details:
kpdf, a Portable Document Format (PDF) viewer for KDE, is based on the xpdf program and thus suffers from similar flaws to those described in DSA-1790. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems: CVE-2009-0146 Multiple buffer overflows in the JBIG2 decoder in kpdf allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted PDF file, related to (1) JBIG2SymbolDict::setBitmap and (2) JBIG2Stream::readSymbolDictSeg. CVE-2009-0147 Multiple integer overflows in the JBIG2 decoder in kpdf allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted PDF file, related to (1) JBIG2Stream::readSymbolDictSeg, (2) JBIG2Stream::readSymbolDictSeg, and (3) JBIG2Stream::readGenericBitmap. CVE-2009-0165 Integer overflow in the JBIG2 decoder in kpdf has unspecified impact related to g*allocn. CVE-2009-0166 The JBIG2 decoder in kpdf allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted PDF file that triggers a free of uninitialized memory. CVE-2009-0799 The JBIG2 decoder in kpdf allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted PDF file that triggers an out-of-bounds read. CVE-2009-0800 Multiple input validation flaws in the JBIG2 decoder in kpdf allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted PDF file. CVE-2009-1179 Integer overflow in the JBIG2 decoder in kpdf allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted PDF file. CVE-2009-1180 The JBIG2 decoder in kpdf allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted PDF file that triggers a free of invalid data. CVE-2009-1181 The JBIG2 decoder in kpdf allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted PDF file that triggers a NULL pointer dereference. CVE-2009-1182 Multiple buffer overflows in the JBIG2 MMR decoder in kpdf allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted PDF file. CVE-2009-1183 The JBIG2 MMR decoder in kpdf allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop and hang) via a crafted PDF file. We recommend that you upgrade your kdegraphics Linux Distribution Packages.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
