    Package        : xpcd
    Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
    Problem-Type   : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE Ids        : CAN-2004-0402
    Jaguar discovered a vulnerability in one component of xpcd, a PhotoCD
    viewer.  xpcd-svga, part of xpcd which uses svgalib to display
    graphics on the console, would copy user-supplied data of arbitrary
    length into a fixed-size buffer in the pcd_open function.
    For the current stable distribution (woody) this problem has been
    fixed in version 2.08-8woody2.
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
    We recommend that you update your xpcd package.
