===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-51-1           December 23, 2004
tetex-bin vulnerability
http://bugs.debian.org/286370
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)

The following packages are affected:

tetex-bin

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 2.0.2-21ubuntu0.4.  In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña noticed that "xdvizilla", an auxiliary
script to integrate DVI file viewing in Mozilla-based browsers,
created temporary files and directories in an insecure manner. This
could allow a symbolic link attack to create or overwrite arbitrary
files with the privileges of the user invoking the program.
