[slackware-security] tetex PDF security (SSA:2006-142-01)

New tetex packages are available for Slackware 10.2 and -current to
fix a possible security issue. teTeX-3.0 incorporates some code from
the xpdf program which has been shown to have various overflows that
could result in program crashes or possibly the execution of arbitrary
code as the teTeX user. This is especially important to consider if
teTeX is being used as part of a printer filter.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

Here are the details from the Slackware 10.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/tetex-3.0-i486-2_10.2.tgz: Regenerated the etex.fmt files
with etex, not pdfetex. This is more appropriate since etex is a binary,
not a link to pdfetex. Thanks to John Breckenridge for reporting the issue.
Added --disable-a4, and fixed the texconfig for US paper default in the
build script. Thanks to Marc Benstein and Jingmin Zhou for reporting this.
Improved /tmp use security.
Patched a possible security issue in library code borrowed from xpdf
that's
used in pdfetex.
