    Package        : xloadimage
    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, a
    graphics file viewer for X11, that can 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 4.1-10woody2.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.1-14.3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 4.1-15.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your xloadimage package.
