        Immunix OS Security Advisory

Packages updated:       tetex
Affected products:      Immunix OS 6.2, 7.0-beta, 7.0
Bugs fixed:             immunix/1644
Date:                   Tue Jul  3 2001
Advisory ID:            IMNX-2001-70-030-01
Author:                 Seth Arnold 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Description:
  zen-parse has discovered a flaw in the temporary file handling
  cabilities of some teTeX filters used automatically as print filters
  when printing .dvi files using 'lpr'. This can lead to an elevation
  of privileges to lp:lp.

  This patch replaces many instances of "$$" when creating temporary
  files with a more robust routine using `mktemp`. As such, this
  advisory relies upon Immunix OS Security Advisory IMNX-2001-70-021-01
  which updated the mktemp package for Immunix OS 6.2.

  We suggest all Immunix OS users upgrade their tetex packages when
  possible.
