    Two buffer overflows have been found in the GIF image parsing code of
    Tk, a cross-platform graphical toolkit, which could lead to the execution
    of arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    identifies the following problems:
    
    
    CVE-2007-5137
    
    It was discovered that libtk-img is prone to a buffer overflow via
    specially crafted multi-frame interlaced GIF files.
    
    CVE-2007-5378
    
    It was discovered that libtk-img is prone to a buffer overflow via
    specially crafted GIF files with certain subimage sizes.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.3-release-7+lenny1.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.3-15etch3.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 1.3-release-8.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libtk-img packages.
