RHSA-2005-026: tetex

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the tetex packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated tetex packages that resolve security issues are now available for
Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat
Security Response Team.

The tetex packages (teTeX) contain an implementation of TeX for Linux or
UNIX systems.

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the Gfx::doImage function of Xpdf which
also affects teTeX due to a shared codebase. A possible hacker could construct a
carefully crafted PDF file that could cause teTeX to crash or possibly
execute arbitrary code when opened. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-1125 to
this issue.

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the Decrypt::makeFileKey2 function of
Xpdf which also affects teTeX due to a shared codebase. A possible hacker could

possibly execute arbitrary code when opened. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0064 to
this issue.

Users should update to these erratum packages which contain backported
patches to correct these issues.
