This vulnerability has been modified since it was last analyzed by the NVD. It is awaiting reanalysis which may result in further changes to the information provided.
Buffer overflow in the open_sty function in mkind.c for makeindex 2.14 in teTeX might allow user-assisted remote attackers to overwrite files and possibly execute arbitrary code via a long filename. NOTE: other overflows exist but might not be exploitable, such as a heap-based overflow in the check_idx function.

Red Hat does not consider this issue to be a security vulnerability. The user would have to voluntarily interact with the attack mechanism to exploit the flaw, and the result would be the ability to run code as themselves.
