Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA937] DSA-937-1 tetex-bin

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-937-1 tetex-bin

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

"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.
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.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.4.3-2 of poppler against which tetex-bin links.
We recommend that you upgrade your tetex-bin package.
