The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


Buffer overflows in dvips and dviljk could be triggered by specially crafted dvi files (CVE-2007-5935, CVE-2007-5937). dvips additionally created temporary files in an insecure manner (CVE-2007-5936).


Update the affected texlive-bin packages.
