Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Moderate: tetex security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2005:026-01
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2005-026.html
Issue date: 2005-03-16
Updated on: 2005-03-16
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
CVE Names: CAN-2005-0064 CAN-2004-1125
----------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

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.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

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. An attacker 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 CAN-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. An attacker 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 CAN-2005-0064 to this issue.

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

4. Solution:
