    Julien Danjou and Peter De Wachter discovered that a buffer overflow
    in the XPM loader of Imlib2, a powerful image loading and rendering
    library, might lead to arbitrary code execution.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.3.0.0debian1-4+etch2.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (lenny) and the unstable
