Package        : xview
Vulnerability  : buffer overflows
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0076

Erik Sjölund discovered that programs linked against xview are
vulnerable to a number of buffer overflows in the XView library.  When
the overflow is triggered in a program which is installed setuid root
a malicious user could perhaps execute arbitrary code as privileged

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.2p1.4-16woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.2p1.4-19.

We recommend that you upgrade your xview packages.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
