    Package        : bmv
    Vulnerability  : integer overflow
    Problem-Type   : local(remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2005-3278
    Debian Bug     : 335497
    
    "felinemalice" discovered an integer overflow in BMV, a post script viewer
    for SVGAlib, that may lead to the execution of arbitrary code through
    specially crafted Postscript files.
    
    For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2-14.3.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2-17sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.2-18.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your bmv package.
