Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.53450
Category:Debian Local Security Checks
Title:Debian Security Advisory DSA 207-1 (tetex-bin)
Summary:Debian Security Advisory DSA 207-1 (tetex-bin)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to tetex-bin
announced via advisory DSA 207-1.

The SuSE security team discovered a vulnerability in kpathsea library
(libkpathsea) which is used by xdvi and dvips. Both programs call the
system() function insecurely, which allows a remote attacker to
execute arbitrary commands via cleverly crafted DVI files.

If dvips is used in a print filter, this allows a local or remote
attacker with print permission execute arbitrary code as the printer
user (usually lp).

This problem has been fixed in version 1.0.7+20011202-7.1for the
current stable distribution (woody), in version 1.0.6-7.3 for the old
stable distribution (potato) and in version 1.0.7+20021025-4 for the
unstable distribution (sid). xdvik-ja and dvipsk-ja are vulnerable as
well, but link to the kpathsea library dynamically and will
automatically be fixed after a new libkpathsea is installed.

We recommend that you upgrade your tetex-lib package immediately.
