    Debian bug     : 576469
    CVE ID         : CVE-2008-6079
    
    It was discovered that imlib2, a library to load and process several image
    formats, did not properly process various image file types.
    Several heap and stack based buffer overflows - partly due to integer
    overflows - in the ARGB, BMP, JPEG, LBM, PNM, TGA and XPM loaders can
    lead to the execution of arbitrary code via crafted image files.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.0-1.2+lenny1.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.2-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.2-1.
