Package        : chmlib
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs        : CVE-2005-2659 CVE-2005-2930 CVE-2005-3318
BugTraq ID     : 15211

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in chmlib, a library for
dealing with CHM format files.  The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project identifies the following problems:


    Palasik Sandor discoverd a buffer overflow in the LZX
    decompression method.


    A buffer overflow has been discovered that could lead to the
    execution of arbitrary code.


    Sven Tantau discoverd a buffer overflow that could lead to the
    execution of arbitrary code.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain chmlib packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.35-6sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.37-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your chmlib packages.
