Package        : zgv
Vulnerability  : programming error
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-1060

Andrea Barisani discovered that zgv, an svgalib graphics viewer,
attempts to decode JPEG images within the CMYK/YCCK colour space
incorrectly, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 5.5-3woody3.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 5.7-1.4.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your zgv package.
