===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-9-1             October 27, 2004
tetex-bin vulnerabilities
CAN-2004-0888
===========================================================

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 2.0.2-21ubuntu0.1. In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Chris Evans and Marcus Meissner recently discovered several integer
overflow vulnerabilities in xpdf, a viewer for PDF files. Because
tetex-bin contains xpdf code, it is also affected. These
vulnerabilities could be exploited by an attacker providing a
specially crafted TeX, LaTeX, or PDF file. Processing such a file with
pdflatex could result in abnormal program termination or the execution
of program code supplied by the attacker.

This bug could be exploited to gain the privileges of the user
invoking pdflatex.
