    Peter Valchev (Google Security) discovered a series of integer overflow weaknesses in Cairo, a vector graphics rendering library used by many other applications. If an application uses cairo to render a maliciously-crafted PNG image, the vulnerability allows the execution of arbitrary code.

    Peter Valchev (Google Security) discovered a series of integer
    overflow weaknesses in Cairo, a vector graphics rendering library used
    by many other applications.  If an application uses cairo to render a
    maliciously-crafted PNG image, the vulnerability allows the execution
    of arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.2.4-4.1+etch1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.4.10-1.1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libcairo 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
