Description

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 CVE-2005-3193 to these issues.

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

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
