    Package        : xli
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow, input sanitising, integer overflow
    Problem-Type   : local (remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE IDs        : CAN-2001-0775 CAN-2005-0638 CAN-2005-0639
    BugTraq ID     : 3006
    Debian Bug     : 298039
    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in xli, an image viewer
    for X11.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies
    the following problems:
        A buffer overflow in the decoder for FACES format images could be
        exploited by an attacker to execute arbitrary code.  This problem
        has been fixed in xloadimage in DSA 069 already.
        Tavis Ormandy of the Gentoo Linux Security Audit Team has reported
        a flaw in the handling of compressed images, where shell
        meta-characters are not adequately escaped.
        Insufficient validation of image properties in have been
        discovered which could potentially result in buffer management
    For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.17.0-11woody1.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.17.0-18.
    We recommend that you upgrade your xli package.
