Description Josh Bressers 2004-10-28 14:35:01 EDT
During a source code audit, Chris Evans and others discovered a number
of integer overflow bugs that affected all versions of xpdf.  An
attacker could construct a carefully crafted PDF file that could cause
xpdf to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code when opened.

tetex contains an internal version of xpdf.

See bug 135393 for patches and demo pdf files.

We should make sure this gets fixed in FC3

Hello Josh,

I built tetex-2.0.2-22 some time ago with the patch to dist-fc4.
Should I release an erratum for FC2, FC3, RHEL2.1, RHEL3?
Comment 3 Mark J. Cox 2004-11-09 05:19:33 EST
Errata needed for FC2 and FC3 to fix this
Comment 4 Jindrich Novy 2004-11-09 09:53:47 EST
tetex-2.0.2-21.1 is now built for FC3
tetex-2.0.2-14FC2 is now built in FC2

both with the patched xpdf.
