The remote host is missing an update to tetex-bin announced via advisory DSA 1350-1.

Insight

Insight

It was discovered that an integer overflow in the xpdf PDF viewer may lead to the execution of arbitrary code if a malformed PDF file is opened. tetex-bin includes a copy of the xpdf code and required an update as well. For the oldstable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in version 2.0.2-30sarge5. The package from the stable distribution (etch) links dynamically against libpoppler and doesn't require a separate update. The package from the unstable distribution (sid) links dynamically against libpoppler and doesn't require a separate update. We recommend that you upgrade your tetex-bin packages.
