 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2012:144
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : tetex
 Date    : August 28, 2012
 Affected: Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in tetex:
 
 The Gfx::getPos function in the PDF parser in poppler, allows
 context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash)
 via unknown vectors that trigger an uninitialized pointer dereference
 (CVE-2010-3702).
 
 The FoFiType1::parse function in fofi/FoFiType1.cc in the PDF parser
 in poppler, allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial
 of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a PDF
 file with a crafted Type1 font that contains a negative array index,
 which bypasses input validation and which triggers memory corruption
 (CVE-2010-3704).
 
 A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way AFM font file
 parser, used for rendering of DVI files, in GNOME evince document
 viewer and other products, processed line tokens from the given input
 stream. A remote attacker could provide a DVI file, with embedded
 specially-crafted font file, and trick the local user to open it with
 an application using the AFM font parser, leading to that particular
 application crash or, potentially, arbitrary code execution with the
 privileges of the user running the application. Different vulnerability
 than CVE-2010-2642 (CVE-2011-0433).
 
 t1lib 5.1.2 and earlier uses an invalid pointer in conjunction with
 a dereference operation, which allows remote attackers to execute
 arbitrary code via a specially crafted Type 1 font in a PDF document
 (CVE-2011-0764).
 
 t1lib 5.1.2 and earlier reads from invalid memory locations, which
 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application
 crash) via a crafted Type 1 font in a PDF document, a different
 vulnerability than CVE-2011-0764 (CVE-2011-1552).
 
 Use-after-free vulnerability in t1lib 5.1.2 and earlier allows
 remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash)
 via a PDF document containing a crafted Type 1 font that triggers an
 invalid memory write, a different vulnerability than CVE-2011-0764
 (CVE-2011-1553).
 
 Off-by-one error in t1lib 5.1.2 and earlier allows remote attackers
 to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a PDF document
 containing a crafted Type 1 font that triggers an invalid memory
 read, integer overflow, and invalid pointer dereference, a different
 vulnerability than CVE-2011-0764 (CVE-2011-1554).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
