    Package        : helix-player
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2005-2629
    BugTraq ID     : 15381
    
    An integer overflow has been discovered in helix-player, the helix
    audio and video player.  This flaw could allow a remote attacker to
    run arbitrary code on a victims computer by supplying a specially
    crafted network resource.
    
    This vulnerability is fixed by version 1.0.6-1 in unstable.
    Helix-player is not currently in the testing distribution.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain a helix-player
    package.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.0.4-1sarge2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.0.6-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your helix-player package.
