    Dan Rosenberg discovered that in dvipng, a utility that converts DVI
    files to PNG graphics, several array index errors allow context-dependent
    attackers, via a specially crafted DVI file, to cause a denial of
    service (crash of the application), and possibly arbitrary code 
    execution.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version dvipng_1.11-1+lenny1.
    
    For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.13-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.13-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your dvipng package.
