    Package        : xpcd
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0074
    
    Erik Sjölund discovered a buffer overflow in pcdsvgaview, an SVGA
    PhotoCD viewer.  xpcd-svga is part of xpcd and uses svgalib to display
    graphics on the Linux console for which root permissions are required.
    A malicious user could overflow a fixed-size buffer and may cause the
    program to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.08-8woody3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your xpcd-svga package immediately.
