Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2005-029
2006-01-12
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : tetex
Version : 2.0.2
Release : 21.7.FC3
Summary : The TeX text formatting system.
Description :
TeTeX is an implementation of TeX for Linux or UNIX systems. TeX takes
a text file and a set of formatting commands as input and creates a
typesetter-independent .dvi (DeVice Independent) file as output.
Usually, TeX is used in conjunction with a higher level formatting
package like LaTeX or PlainTeX, since TeX by itself is not very
user-friendly.

Install tetex if you want to use the TeX text formatting system. If
you are installing tetex, you will also need to install tetex-afm (a
PostScript(TM) font converter for TeX),
tetex-dvips (for converting .dvi files to PostScript format
for printing on PostScript printers), tetex-latex (a higher level
formatting package which provides an easier-to-use interface for TeX),
and tetex-xdvi (for previewing .dvi files in X). Unless you are an
expert at using TeX, you should also install the tetex-doc package,
which includes the documentation for TeX.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Several flaws were discovered in the way teTeX processes PDF
files. An attacker could construct a carefully crafted PDF
file that could cause poppler to crash or possibly execute
arbitrary code when opened.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned
the names CVE-2005-3624, CVE-2005-3625, CVE-2005-3626, and
CVE-2005-3627 to these issues.
