USN-554-1: teTeX and TeX Live vulnerabilities
Posted on: 12/06/2007 11:30 PM

A new teTeX and TeX Live vulnerabilities update is available for Ubuntu Linux. Here the announcement:

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-554-1 December 06, 2007
tetex-bin, texlive-bin vulnerabilities
CVE-2007-5935, CVE-2007-5936, CVE-2007-5937
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 6.10
Ubuntu 7.04
Ubuntu 7.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
tetex-bin 3.0-13ubuntu6.1

Ubuntu 6.10:
tetex-bin 3.0-17ubuntu2.1

Ubuntu 7.04:
tetex-bin 3.0-27ubuntu1.2

Ubuntu 7.10:
texlive-extra-utils 2007-12ubuntu3.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

Bastien Roucaries discovered that dvips as included in tetex-bin
and texlive-bin did not properly perform bounds checking. If a
user or automated system were tricked into processing a specially
crafted dvi file, dvips could be made to crash and execute code as
the user invoking the program. (CVE-2007-5935)

Joachim Schrod discovered that the dviljk utilities created
temporary files in an insecure way. Local users could exploit a
race condition to create or overwrite files with the privileges of
the user invoking the program. (CVE-2007-5936)

Joachim Schrod discovered that the dviljk utilities did not
perform bounds checking in many instances. If a user or automated
system were tricked into processing a specially crafted dvi file,
the dviljk utilities could be made to crash and execute code as
the user invoking the program. (CVE-2007-5937)
