Debian DSA-937-1 : tetex-bin - buffer overflows

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 22803

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

'infamous41md' and Chris Evans discovered several heap based buffer overflows in xpdf, the Portable Document Format (PDF) suite, which is also present in tetex-bin, the binary files of teTeX, and which can lead to a denial of service by crashing the application or possibly to the execution of arbitrary code.

Solution

Upgrade the tetex-bin package.

For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.7+20011202-7.7.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 2.0.2-30sarge4.
