Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : tetex (MDKSA-2007:164)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Maurycy Prodeus found an integer overflow vulnerability in the way
various PDF viewers processed PDF files. An attacker could create a
malicious PDF file that could cause tetex to crash and possibly
execute arbitrary code open a user opening the file.

In addition, tetex contains an embedded copy of the GD library which
suffers from a number of bugs which potentially lead to denial of
service and possibly other issues.

Integer overflow in gdImageCreateTrueColor function in the GD Graphics
Library (libgd) before 2.0.35 allows user-assisted remote attackers to
have unspecified remote attack vectors and impact. (CVE-2007-3472)

The gdImageCreateXbm function in the GD Graphics Library (libgd)
before 2.0.35 allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial
of service (crash) via unspecified vectors involving a gdImageCreate
failure. (CVE-2007-3473)

Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the GIF reader in the GD
Graphics Library (libgd) before 2.0.35 allow user-assisted remote
attackers to have unspecified attack vectors and impact.
(CVE-2007-3474)

The GD Graphics Library (libgd) before 2.0.35 allows user-assisted
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a GIF image
that has no global color map. (CVE-2007-3475)

Array index error in gd_gif_in.c in the GD Graphics Library (libgd)
before 2.0.35 allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial
of service (crash and heap corruption) via large color index values in
crafted image data, which results in a segmentation fault.
(CVE-2007-3476)

The (a) imagearc and (b) imagefilledarc functions in GD Graphics
Library (libgd) before 2.0.35 allows attackers to cause a denial of
service (CPU consumption) via a large (1) start or (2) end angle
degree value. (CVE-2007-3477)

Race condition in gdImageStringFTEx (gdft_draw_bitmap) in gdft.c in
the GD Graphics Library (libgd) before 2.0.35 allows user-assisted
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via unspecified
vectors, possibly involving truetype font (TTF) support.
(CVE-2007-3478)

Updated packages have been patched to prevent these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
