The KDE Team reports:

kpdf, the KDE pdf viewer, shares code with xpdf. xpdf contains a vulnerability that can cause a stack based buffer overflow via a PDF file that exploits an integer overflow in StreamPredictor::StreamPredictor(). Remotely supplied pdf files can be used to disrupt the kpdf viewer on the client machine and possibly execute arbitrary code.
