    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.
