    It was discovered that libimager-perl, a Perl extension for Generating 24
    bit images, did not correctly handle 8-bit per-pixel compressed images,
    which could allow the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution, this problem has been fixed in version
    0.50-1etch1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libimager-perl package.
