Subject: [USN-410-2] teTeX vulnerability

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-410-2           January 25, 2007
tetex-bin vulnerability

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 5.10:
  tetex-bin                                2.0.2-30ubuntu3.6

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

USN-410-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the poppler PDF loader library.  This 
update provides the corresponding updates for a copy of this code in 
tetex-bin in Ubuntu 5.10.  Versions of tetex-bin after Ubuntu 5.10 use 
poppler directly and do not need a separate update.

Original advisory details:

 The poppler PDF loader library did not limit the recursion depth of
 the page model tree. By tricking a user into opening a specially
 crafter PDF file, this could be exploited to trigger an infinite loop
 and eventually crash an application that uses this library.

Updated packages for Ubuntu 5.10:
