iDEFENSE has reported a stack based buffer overflow in xpdf.

The patch is here:

The iDEFENSE advisory is attachment 109745 [details]

I don't know if this issue will affect the RHEL2.1 tetex.

Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2005-01-13 23:05:20 UTC

We're going to want to roll new packages for RHSA-2005:006

Comment 2 Josh Bressers 2005-01-14 12:15:52 UTC
The patch URL does not yet work.  We don't have a patch from upstream yet.  I'll
update the bugs as soon as I know.

Comment 3 Mark J. Cox 2005-01-19 10:26:11 UTC
Now public, see URL for patch, removing embargo

Comment 4 Jindrich Novy 2005-01-25 16:14:51 UTC
RHEL-3 version of tetex is unaffected by this issue since it lacks
implementation of Decrypt::makeFileKey2() method and
Decrypt::makeFileKey() is safe in Decrypt.cc.
