    Package        : xli
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
    Problem type   : local (remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-3178
    Debian Bug     : 332524
    
    Ariel Berkman discovered several buffer overflows in xloadimage, which
    are also present in xli, a command line utility for viewing images in
    X11, and could be exploited via large image titles and cause the
    execution of arbitrary code.
    
    For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.17.0-11woody2.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.17.0-18sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your xli package.

      its next update.
