    Package        : gtksee

    CVE Ids        : CAN-2003-0444
    
    Viliam Holub discovered a bug in gtksee whereby, when loading PNG
    images of certain color depths, gtksee would overflow a heap-allocated
    buffer.  This vulnerability could be exploited by an attacker using a
    carefully constructed PNG image to execute arbitrary code when the
    victim loads the file in gtksee.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.5.0-6.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    Refer to Debian bug #76346.
    
    We recommend that you update your gtksee package.
