    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-4607
    Debian Bug     : 752861
    
    Don A. Bailey from Lab Mouse Security discovered an integer overflow
    flaw in the way the lzo library decompressed certain archives compressed
    with the LZO algorithm. An attacker could create a specially crafted
    LZO-compressed input that, when decompressed by an application using the
    lzo library, would cause that application to crash or, potentially,
    execute arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
