    Package        : djvulibre
    Vulnerability  : arbitrary code execution
    Problem type   : local (remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2012-6535
    
    It was discovered that djvulibre, the Open Source DjVu implementation
    project, can be crashed or possibly make it execute arbitrary code when
    processing a specially crafted djvu file.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.5.23-3+squeeze1.
    
    This problem has been fixed before the release of the stable distribution
    (wheezy), therefore it is not affected.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your djvulibre packages.
