    It was discovered that a buffer overflow in the GIF image parsing code
    of Tk, a cross-platform graphical toolkit, could lead to denial of
    service and potentially the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 8.4.12-1etch2.
    
    For the old stable distribution (sarge), this problem has been fixed in
    version 8.4.9-1sarge2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your tk8.4 packages.
