Mandriva: Subject: [Security Announce] [ MDVSA-2009:231 ] htmldoc Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake A security vulnerability has been identified and fixed in htmldoc: Buffer overflow in the set_page_size function in util.cxx in HTMLDOC 1.8.27 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via a long MEDIA SIZE comment. NOTE: it was later reported that there were additional vectors in htmllib.cxx and ps-pdf.cxx using an AFM font file with a long glyph name, but these vectors do not cross privilege boundaries (CVE-2009-3050). This update provides a solution to this vulnerability.
