Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2001:086: tetex

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the tetex package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2001:086 (tetex).


A problem was discovered in the temporary file handling capabilities of some
teTeX filters by zen-parse. These filters are used as print filters
automatically when printing .dvi files using lpr. This can lead to elevated
rights. This update relies on the updated mktemp packages for 7.x in
MDKA-2001:021, which gives mktemp the ability to create temporary directories.
8.x users already have a mktemp that works in this fashion.
