Package        : gnumeric
Vulnerability  : integer overflow
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-0668

Thilo Pfennig and Morten Welinder discovered several integer overflow
weaknesses in Gnumeric, a GNOME spreadsheet application.  These
vulnerabilities could result in the execution of arbitrary code
through the opening of a maliciously crafted Excel spreadsheet.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.6.3-5+etch1.

For the unstable (sid) distribution, these problems were fixed in
version 1.8.1-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your gnumeric packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database

        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
