Fedora Core 3 : tetex-2.0.2-21.2 (2004-585)

High Nessus Plugin ID 16099


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


The updated tetex package fixes a buffer overflow which allows attackers to cause the internal xpdf library used by applications in tetex to crash, and possibly to execute arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures projects (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-1125 to this issue.

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.


Update the affected packages.
