    Package        : xloadimage
    Problem type   : buffer overflow
    Debian-specific: no
    
    The version of xloadimage (a graphics files viewer for X) that was
    shipped in Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 has a buffer overflow in the code that
    handles FACES format images. This could be exploited by an attacker by
    tricking someone into viewing a specially crafted image using xloadimage
    which would allow him to execute arbitrary code.
    
    This problem was fixed in version 4.1-5potato1.
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
