Vulnerability Assessment Details
xpdf, tetex-bin vulnerabilities
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
These remote packages are missing security patches :
A potential buffer overflow has been found in the xpdf viewer. An
insufficient input validation could be exploited by a possible hacker
providing a specially crafted PDF file which, when processed by xpdf,
could result in abnormal program termination or the execution of
attacker supplied program code with the user's rights.
The tetex-bin package contains the affected xpdf code to generate PDF
output and process included PDF files, thus is vulnerable as well.

- libkpathsea-dev-2.0.2-21ubuntu0.3 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- libkpathsea3-2.0.2-21ubuntu0.3 (Ubuntu 4.10)
