Description Jan Lieskovsky 2010-04-28 08:34:37 EDT
An integer overflow was found in the way TeX text formatting
system processed special commands. If a user was tricked into
processing a specially-crafted typesetter-independent .dvi
(DeVice Independent) file, it could lead to dvips executable
crash or, potentially, to arbitrary code execution with the
privileges of the user running dvips. Different vulnerability
than CVE-2010-0739.

This may work in some cases, but not in general.  nextstring + numbytes may still overflow for certain nextstring / numbytes values.
