    Package        : sdl-image1.2
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
    Problem type   : local(remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2007-6697 CVE-2008-0554
    
    An oversight led to the version number of the Debian 4.0 `Etch' update
    for advisory DSA 1493-1 being lower than the version in the main archive,
    making it uninstallable. This update corrects the version number.
    For reference the full advisory is quoted below:
    
    Several local/remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the image
    loading library for the Simple DirectMedia Layer 1.2. The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2007-6697
    
        Gynvael Coldwind discovered a buffer overflow in GIF image parsing,
        which could result in denial of service and potentially the
        execution of arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2008-0544
    
        It was discovered that a buffer overflow in IFF ILBM image parsing
        could result in denial of service and potentially the execution of
        arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.2.5-2+etch1.
    
    For the old stable distribution (sarge), these problems have been fixed
    in version 1.2.4-1etch1. Due to a copy & paste error "etch1" was appended
    to the version number instead of "sarge1". Since the update is otherwise
    technically correct, the update was not rebuilt to the buildd network.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your sdl-image1.2 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
            will update the internal database
    apt-get upgrade
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
