 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                       MDVSA-2009:231-1
http://www.mandriva.com/security/ 
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : htmldoc
 Date    : December 7, 2009
 Affected: 2008.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A security vulnerability has been identified and fixed in htmldoc:
 
 Buffer overflow in the set_page_size function in util.cxx in HTMLDOC
 1.8.27 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to execute
 arbitrary code via a long MEDIA SIZE comment.  NOTE: it was later
 reported that there were additional vectors in htmllib.cxx and
 ps-pdf.cxx using an AFM font file with a long glyph name, but these
 vectors do not cross privilege boundaries (CVE-2009-3050).
 
 This update provides a solution to this vulnerability.

 Update:

 Packages for 2008.0 are being provided due to extended support for
 Corporate products.
