Fedora Core 4 : tetex-3.0-9.FC4 (2006-028)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 20409


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


Several flaws were discovered in the way teTeX processes PDF files. An attacker could construct a carefully crafted PDF file that could cause poppler to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code when opened.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the names CVE-2005-3625, CVE-2005-3626, and CVE-2005-3627 to these issues.

This package also updates bindings in texdoc and causes the local texmf tree to be searched first.

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.
