Slackware Advisory SSA:2006-142-01 tetex PDF security

The remote host is missing an update as announced via advisory 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:
