[SECURITY] Fedora Core 3 Update: tetex-2.0.2-21.5



---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2005-1127
2005-12-07
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : tetex
Version     : 2.0.2                      
Release     : 21.5                  
Summary     : The TeX text formatting system.
Description :
TeTeX is an implementation of TeX for Linux or UNIX systems. TeX takes
a text file and a set of formatting commands as input and creates a
typesetter-independent .dvi (DeVice Independent) file as output.
Usually, TeX is used in conjunction with a higher level formatting
package like LaTeX or PlainTeX, since TeX by itself is not very
user-friendly.

Install tetex if you want to use the TeX text formatting system. If
you are installing tetex, you will also need to install tetex-afm (a
PostScript(TM) font converter for TeX),
tetex-dvips (for converting .dvi files to PostScript format
for printing on PostScript printers), tetex-latex (a higher level
formatting package which provides an easier-to-use interface for TeX),
and tetex-xdvi (for previewing .dvi files in X). Unless you are an
expert at using TeX, you should also install the tetex-doc package,
which includes the documentation for TeX.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Several flaws were discovered in Xpdf. An attacker could
construct a carefully crafted PDF file that could cause Xpdf
to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code when opened. The
teTeX package contains a copy of the Xpdf code used for
parsing PDF files and is therefore affected by this bug.The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the
name CAN-2005-3193 to these issues.

Users of teTeX should upgrade to this updated package, which
contains a patch to resolve these issues.
