Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

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 teTeX package contains a copy
of the Xpdf code used for parsing PDF files and is therefore affected
by this bug.The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned
the name CVE-2005-3193 to these issues.

Users of teTeX should upgrade to this updated package, which contains
a patch to resolve these issues.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
