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.
