Package        : libimager-perl
Vulnerability  : programing error
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-0053
Debian Bug     : 359661

Kjetil Kjernsmo discovered a bug in libimager-perl, a Perl extension
for generating 24 bit images, which can lead to a segmentation fault
if it operates on 4-channel JPEG images.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain this package.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version perl_0.44-1sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 5.0-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libimager-perl package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
