Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:113: 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-2006:113 (tetex).



Integer overflows were reported in the GD Graphics Library (libgd)

2.0.28, and possibly other versions. These overflows permit remote

attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary

code via PNG image files with large image rows values that lead to a

heap-based buffer overflow in the gdImageCreateFromPngCtx() function.

Tetex contains an embedded copy of the GD library code. (CVE-2004-0941)



The LZW decoding in the gdImageCreateFromGifPtr function in the Thomas

Boutell graphics draw (GD) library (aka libgd) 2.0.33 permits remote attackers

to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via malformed GIF data that

causes an infinite loop. Tetex contains an embedded copy of the GD library

code. (CVE-2006-2906)



Updated packages have been patched to address both issues.
