Package        : libextractor
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-2458
BugTraq ID     : 18021

Luigi Auriemma discovered a buffer overflow in the processing of ASF
files in libextractor, a library to extract arbitrary meta-data from
files., which can lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.4.2-2sarge5.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.5.14-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libextractor 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 at the end of this advisory:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
