    Package        : pixman
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-9766
    
    Vincent LE GARREC discovered an integer overflow in pixman, a
    pixel-manipulation library for X and cairo. A remote attacker can
    exploit this flaw to cause an application using the pixman library to
    crash, or potentially, to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of
    the user running the application.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
    in version 0.26.0-4+deb7u2.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), the testing distribution (stretch)
    and the unstable distribution (sid), this problem was already fixed in
    version 0.32.6-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your pixman packages.
