Fedora Core 4 : tetex-3.0-9.FC4 (2005-028)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 62250
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description

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.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
