Package        : xloadimage
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising, integer overflow
Problem-Type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0638 CAN-2005-0639
Debian Bug     : 298926

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in xloadimage, an image
viewer for X11.  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
identifies the following problems:


    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 4.1-10woody1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 4.1-14.2.

We recommend that you upgrade your xloadimage package.
