    A regression was discovered in the security update for libxvmc,
    causing segfaults with some applications. Updated packages are available
    to address this problem. For reference, the original advisory text
    follows.
    
    Ilja van Sprundel of IOActive discovered several security issues in
    multiple components of the X.org graphics stack and the related
    libraries: Various integer overflows, sign handling errors in integer
    conversions, buffer overflows, memory corruption and missing input
    sanitising may lead to privilege escalation or denial of service.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2:1.0.5-1+squeeze2.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2:1.0.7-1+deb7u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libxvmc packages.
