Mandriva Update for tetex MDKSA-2007:109 (tetex)

Please Install the Updated Packages.
Buffer overflow in the gdImageStringFTEx function in gdft.c in the GD Graphics Library 2.0.33 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted string with a JIS encoded font. Tetex 3.x uses an embedded copy of the gd source and may also be affected by this issue (CVE-2007-0455). A buffer overflow in the open_sty function for makeindex in Tetex could allow user-assisted remote attackers to overwrite files and possibly execute arbitrary code via a long filename (CVE-2007-0650). The updated packages have been patched to prevent these issues.
