Package        : netpbm-free
Vulnerability  : stack-based buffer overflow
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id         : CVE-2009-4274
Debian Bug     : 569060

Marc Schoenefeld discovered a stack-based buffer overflow in the XPM reader
implementation in netpbm-free, a suite of image manipulation utilities.
An attacker could cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly
execute arbitrary code via an XPM image file that contains a crafted header
field associated with a large color index value.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 2:10.0-12+lenny1.

For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 2:10.0-12.1+squeeze1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.

Due to a problem with the archive system it is not possible to release
all architectures. The missing architectures will be installed into the
archive once they become available.

We recommend that you upgrade your netpbm-free package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
