Package        : fbi
Vulnerability  : typo
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-3119

Toth Andras discovered that the fbgs framebuffer postscript/PDF viewer
contains a typo, which prevents the intended filter against malicious
postscript commands from working correctly. This might lead to the
deletion of user data when displaying a postscript file.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.01-1.2sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your fbi package.
