Posted on: 01/26/2007 02:15 AM

A new teTeX vulnerability update is available for Ubuntu Linux. Here the announcement:

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-410-2 January 25, 2007
tetex-bin vulnerability

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.10

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 5.10:
tetex-bin 2.0.2-30ubuntu3.6

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

Details follow:

USN-410-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the poppler PDF loader library. This
update provides the corresponding updates for a copy of this code in
tetex-bin in Ubuntu 5.10. Versions of tetex-bin after Ubuntu 5.10 use
poppler directly and do not need a separate update.

Original advisory details:

The poppler PDF loader library did not limit the recursion depth of
the page model tree. By tricking a user into opening a specially
crafter PDF file, this could be exploited to trigger an infinite loop
and eventually crash an application that uses this library.

Updated packages for Ubuntu 5.10:
