[SECURITY] [DLA 1514-1] texlive-bin security update

Package        : texlive-bin
Version        : 2014.20140926.35254-6+deb8u1
CVE ID         : not yet available

Nick Roessler from the University of Pennsylvania has found a buffer overflow
in texlive-bin, the executables for TexLive, the popular distribution of TeX
document production system.

This buffer overflow can be used for arbitrary code execution by crafting a
special type1 font (.pfb) and provide it to users running pdf(la)tex, dvips or
luatex in a way that the font is loaded.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your texlive-bin packages.

these updates to your system and frequently asked questions can be
