    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
    in version 0.6.4-1+deb7u2. This update also fixes CVE-2015-7801, which
    was originally targeted for a wheezy point update.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.7.5-1+deb8u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your optipng packages.
