Package : tetex-bin
Vulnerability : integer overflows
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2004-0888
Debian Bug : 278298

Chris Evans discovered several integer overflows in xpdf, that are also present in tetex-bin, binary files for the teTeX distribution, which can be exploited remotely by a specially crafted PDF document and lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 20011202-7.3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 2.0.2-23.

We recommend that you upgrade your tetex-bin packages.
